Ever wonder how to preserve all those great garden fruits and vegetables? This food-preservation class will teach you the basic steps for canning, freezing, drying, and fermenting. Participants will receive a “Preserving the Harvest” food-preservation packet and will learn recommended methods for preserving foods, as well as the latest and safest recipes and equipment to ensure safety. Classes will be a combination of presentation and hands-on activities. No class July 4.
