Never canned before?  This one-hour class is designed for first timers who want to know what is involved with this type of food preservation process.    We will cover the basic canning, freezing, and drying principles as you start to plan your garden season.  You’ll learn about the latest trends, and will be well informed when you purchase the equipment and supplies and get canning!  Jane Conroy will guide you through the steps.
