: Food Preservation 101 is a fun overview for adults and older school-age children on the old-time (and still practical!) arts of drying, freezing, pickling, hot-water bath and pressure canning fruits and vegetables. Find out about the equipment, time and money each method requires. Learn how to avoid common food preservation mistakes. Take home recipes and complete food preservation instructions from your Polk County Extension.
No food preparation or actual food preservation will be done in class. The purpose of the class, taught by Iowa State University Extension Nutrition and Health program specialist Mary Krisco, MS, RD, is to help beginners decide which type of food preservation would be most practical and to remind experienced canners of new food safety procedures. Please reserve early by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces are limited. (Many Preservation 101 classes are being presented. Please mention the date and location of the workshop you would like to attend.)
