This workshop is intended for those wanting to learn how to safely preserve food and also is a reminder to those experienced in preserving. We will cover canning, freezing, drying, pickling, and making jams and jellies.  As a reminder, if you are using a pressure canner for your home canning, it is important to have the dial gauge checked each season before you begin using it. Canner lids will be tested at this workshop for no extra charge. All that is needed is a lid and dial gauge.
