Ever want to learn how to preserve the food from your own garden or the Farmers Market? It is not as hard as you might think. Come and learn how to preserve your own food, from pickles to salsa, to green beans. Learn the difference between blanching, hot water bath and pressure cooking, plus receive a few recipes to help you get started.
Taught by instructor Lyn Young. Lyn has been preserving food since she was a little girl. She began canning food as a child helping her grandmother and her mother and now for her own family. She loves to make homemade salsa, preserve vegetables and make chili and pizza sauces. The greatest reward for her is to serve a meal that was grown and harvested by her and/or her childhood neighbors. She will show you how easy farm to table can be!
