Canning Peaches for Beginners
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Cornell Cooperative Extension Center
480 North Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424
Canandaigua, NY-Farmers markets, CSAs and home gardens are overflowing with fresh, local produce. One of the best ways to extend the harvest is by learning home food preservation methods. Hope Galens, Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Local Food Educator will lead a class on canning peaches for beginners. Join us for a fun-filled, hands-on, step-by-step class that will explain how to can peaches using a boiling water bath canner. Participants will leave with a pint of fresh, local canned peaches.
Fee: $20 per participant; participants are asked to bring their own apron and dishtowel (to transport their peaches)
