Freezing and Canning Workshop Set for May 5, 12, 19 and 26, 2015

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, at 603 Wagner Avenue, Greenville.

There will be four sessions to the workshop:

May 5 – Water Bath Canning
May 12 – Freezing Fruits and Vegetables
May 19 – Pressure Canning
May 26 – Jams, Jellies and Preserves

Each session is from 6:30pm-7:30pm. All sessions are free. Class size is limited to 20.

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.

To reserve a spot in the class, contact OSU Extension, Darke County, at 937-548-5215 or email Diane Barga at
