Ohio State University Extension Noble and Washington Counties are offering a series of food preservation workshops on safely canning, freezing, and drying foods at home. Whether you are experienced or new to home food preservation, learn how to preserve summer’s bounty so it is safe and ready to eat year-round.
Each class will address basic food safety principles, demonstrate how to use proper equipment and provide handouts and recipes. Participants will practice their canning skills and have the chance to sample food and take home their own jar.
The first class on Tuesday, July 16 provides hands-on training of easy pickling and freezing fresh produce. The second class on Tuesday, August 13 will cover drying, and participants will process green beans using a pressure canner. The third class will demonstrate how to use a water bath canner for tomato products on Tuesday, September 24. The final class scheduled for Tuesday, October 15 will explain how to preserve meats, soups and stews.
All classes are scheduled from one to three o’clock and will be held at the Marietta First Church of the Nazarene located at 100 Mill Creek Rd. Classes are open to anyone, but space is limited to 15 people. Registration fees are: one class-$25, two classes-$45, three classes-$60 and 4 classes-$70 per person. The book, So Easy to Preserve is included in the registration cost. Participants can also bring their pressure canner lids (dial gauges only) to have them tested at no cost.
