with Genevieve Mack

Are you wondering what to do with all the garden abundance… or do you find yourself simply want to preserve your garden and pop open some summer berries to enjoy in the snowy winter season? Canning and Food Preservation is the key!  We will learn about safely canning high acid fruit s and low acid vegetables, using both the water bath method as well as pressure canning methods following the National Food Preservation Guidelines.  In addition to demonstrating a fruit preserve process and pickling vegetables, we will also discuss other options like canned pie fillings and homemade apple cider vinegar.   This is a must experience class for anyone who wants to learn country kitchen and homesteading skills that you can use for years to come.
