Plan to join me, Renay Knapp, Family Consumer Science Agent for the Transylvania Cooperative Extension, at our office on 106 East Morgan Street in Brevard, one, two or all three hands-on food preservation workshops being offered in July.
These three hands-on classes involve preparing the produce and processing either in the hot water bath or in the pressure canner. Each class is offered once during the day and once in the evening to accommodate different schedules.
Hands-on classes offered are:
Cooked and Freezer Jams on Monday, July 9th, from 1 - 3 pm OR 6 - 8 pm
Fruits and Pickles on Thursday, July 19th, from 1 - 3 pm OR 6 - 8 pm
Vegetables on Tuesday, July 24th from 1 - 3 pm OR 6 - 8 pm
If you did not attend the introductory class on June 19th, please plan to come one hour early to get a lesson on the basics of canning.
The cost for each of these four classes is $10 per person, and if you would like to purchase a Ball Blue Book, they will be available for sale for $5. Pre-registration is necessary, so please call the Transylvania Cooperative Extension at 828/884-3109 to reserve your spot.
