Gardeners and other lovers of fresh produce are often interested in
extending the season’s bounty by learning more about home-preserving
fruits and vegetables. Now they can, by attending a free “Food
Preservation Workshop” presented by Ohio State University Extension,
Darke County, 603 Wagner Avenue, Greenville.
There will be four sessions to the workshop:
May 23, 2017 - Canning Basics
June 20, 2017 – Freezing Basics
July 18, 2017 – Pickles
August 15, 2017 – Canning Meat & Soup
Each session is from 6:30pm-7:30pm. All sessions are free.
Class size is limited to 20 people.
The workshop focuses on the basics of home canning and preservation and
is appropriate for people with all levels of experience.
We emphasize the science behind preservation. We want everyone
who cans or freezes fresh fruits and vegetables to understand why
certain procedures must be followed precisely to ensure a high quality,
safe product that they and their family can enjoy.
All pressure canner gauges except weighted gauges should be tested for
accuracy each year. Canner gauge testing is available for $5.00.
