Join us for this informative workshop reviewing canning basics and safe home-canning practices for fruits, vegetables, proteins, jellied products and pickles. Participants will learn about appropriate canning methods for different food items, proper packing, head space, altitude adjustments, processing times and more. This workshop will also cover how to and when to use both water bath and pressure canners to preserve foods at home. All participants will receive a print copy of the Complete Guide to Home Canning (196-page, color, spiral-bound recipe and resource book). Note: This isn’t a hands on canning class, but will be the lecture that is considered a prerequisite for a hands-on class.

Persons with a disability may request reasonable accommodation, such as a sign language interpreter, by contacting at Lydia Watts at 928-445-6590 x221. Requests should be made as early as possible to allow time to arrange the accommodation.
