After a long, cold winter, nothing is more welcome than the prospect of fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and more. Farmers markets, roadside stands, home gardens and CSAs will soon be overflowing with fresh, local goodies. Sometimes, though, we find ourselves with more produce than we know what to do with. Home food preservation methods such as canning, freezing and dehydrating our great ways to preserve the bounty. It saves you trips to the store, controls what ingredients are in your food and rewards your efforts with a taste of summer when summer is long gone. Learn all about the different methods, the costs involved, the difference between high acid and low acid food, equipment and more. This class is information only and we will not be doing any hands-on activities. There is no fee for this class but registration is requested.
