Canning Classes Scheduled

Two canning classes have been scheduled for this summer. The first involves making Jams & Jellies and will held on Tuesday, June 29th. Mary Schroepfer, a Nutrition Specialist with University of Missouri Extension, will be teaching the class, and she has wonderful knowledge about how to safely and beautifully preserve various foods. She is a true artisan in the world of canning and taught a couple of classes for us last year.

The second class that we will be hosting is Tuesday, July 20th. This class will focus on pressure canning and how to safely preserve green beans, carrots, and other items that need more than just hot water canning techniques. Mary will also teach this class, and we'll send out a reminder when we get closer to the date.

Both classes will begin at 6:30 PM, and registration is required. The cost for each class is $5. Attending the first class isn't a prerequisite for the second, so please feel free to register for either one or both classes.
