Autumn Canning Classes
Back by popular demand! Time for more canning classes.
Beginning Class covers hot water bath canning and the equipment and steps it takes to can high acid foods like fruits, tomatoes, pickles, relishes, jams, jelly and preserves. I will supply all the equipment and produce and you will go home with some goodies. This is a hands on class so you get experience and be ready to can up a storm. Cost is $50 and class runs from 9 to 3 on Saturday September 26th at my home.
Advanced Class covers pressure canning of low acid foods like vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, soups and stews. Learn to make one jar dinners and learn that the pressure canner is your friend. This is a hands on class. You will leave ready to can using a pressure cooker and take home some goodies. Cost is $50 and class runs from 9 to 3 on Saturday October 3rd at my home.
Call 360-705-9818 Please be prepared to prepay for the class. Make a reservation today. Each class will hold only eight students to ensure everyone has amble opportunity to practice.
I will also be at the Yakima Connection Fall Harvest Festival displaying canning goods and equipment. Please come by to get and say hello. The Yakima Connection is on the corner of Mullen Road and Carpenter Road in Lacey, Washington. I love this stand because it is just a short distance from my home and the produce has been great this year! I am now spoiled after being able to go around the corner for farm fresh goods.
