The Grayson County Extension Service will offer free Food Preservation classes to teach the different techniques on how to preserve your garden harvest.
Instructor Natalie Taul, agent for Family & Consumer Sciences, will teach you how to safely preserve homemade jam, salsa, and a variety of fruits and vegetables. Two sessions will be held at the Old Caneyville School at 2:30 p.m. on the following schedule:
Basics of Water Bath Canning: June 16 – Water Bath Canning, sometimes referred to as the boiling-water method of canning, is the process used to process all high acid foods. This process is most often used to preserve fruits, pickled vegetables, jams, jellies, salsas, pie fillings and pickles.
Basics of Pressure Canning: June 30 – Pressure canning can be intimidating, but it truly is safe and simple. This canning method is most often used to can any non-acidic food, such as meats, soup stocks, green beans and vegetables.
Advanced registration is required, and we must have a minimum of five participants registered or the class will be cancelled. You should call the Extension Office at (270) 259-3492 to register or for more information.
