June 12th – Overview of Food Preservation with Christi Evans, FCS Educator
“This session will provide an overview of the different types of food preservation including refrigeration, freezing, canning, and drying foods. Participants will learn about the two safe methods of canning foods at home which are water bath canning and pressure canning. For safe home canning it is essential to use the correct canning method and equipment for the type of food you are canning. We will review what equipment is needed and the importance of following guidelines for the type of food, the size of jar, and packing methods for canning foods. We will also discuss the importance of testing pressure canner dial gauges annually.”
