2021 Food Preservation Classes

Jam Making

Learn to make one of our favorite Blueberry Spice Jams. The principles for making this jam carry forward in almost all jam recipes. We will be demonstrating how to utilize a water bath canner to process the jars we prepare.

Pickling

In this class, we will pickle red onions which will be processed using a water bath canner. We will also discuss other types and processing methods for pickles.

Salsa

As a change of pace, we tried a delicious apple peach salsa recipe to process in a water bath canner. I will provide you with other recipe recommendations as well but this recipe is a great way to supplement your garden produce with other locally grown products.

Pressure Canning

Pressure Canning can be really scary because your neighbor’s grandmother’s sister had her pressure canner explode 30 years ago. Join us as we take the fear out of pressure canning. As a reminder, a lot of vegetables need to be preserved under pressure. There is no equivalent for water bath canning.

And as a bonus - anyone who signs up for any of the classes will receive information and a video on dehydrating fruit leathers! They are a family favorite.
