Your hard work in the garden has paid off…maybe too well. So what now? Preserve all that goodness with canning! Simply put, canning is one step beyond cooking. It’s a method that applies heat to food in a closed-glass, canning jar to stop natural spoilage by removing air from the jar which creates a seal. This introductory class will cover the two home canning methods: water bath canning and pressure canning, plus the basics of canning food – from the equipment needed to food safety steps to some favorite recipes for preserving tomatoes and fruits. You will make a strawberry/jalapeno jam using the water bath method as well as process a chicken stock (made from Janna’s chickens) using the pressure canning method. Everyone will go home with either a jar of jam or a jar of chicken stock. Janna Goerdt from Fat Chicken Farm in Embarrass will be heading the class.
