Description

Hold on to your tortilla chips for this hands on salsa canning class. Led by University of Minnesota Extension Food Safety Educator, Suzanne Driessen, you will learn the nitty gritty details and tips for the safe canning of tomato products. This class is perfect for those interested in canning their produce from their own garden or preparing salsa for the 2018 Minnesota Salsa Fest competition. More information on the Minnesota Salsa Fest can be found at www.sfa-mn.org/salsafest

Attendees of this class will work with locally grown produce to prepare and can a batch of salsa. Each class participant will get to take home their own jar of freshly canned salsa, along with recipes and resources to continue to can safely at home.

Suzanne Driessen has been preserving food her whole life and teaching food preservation and food safety for 21 years at the University of Minnesota. She develops and teaches food safety classes for the food industry and consumers. Her experience with food preservation started when she was 8 years old, growing up in a large family of 13 with a huge garden to match. In the summer it felt like she worked in a small on-farm food processing factory. They canned everything. Today, Suzanne has a garden and continues to can her harvest. Her favorites are tomato juice, a local Minnesota tomato mix, pickled beans and pickled jalapeño peppers.

Class space is limited. Register online through Eventbrite.com or RSVP by calling (712)899-2268 or emailing Natalie@sproutmn.com.
