  • Learn how to preserve your fruits and vegetables safely! This class is a fun overview of drying, freezing, pickling, hot-water bath canning and pressure canning.
  • Find out about the equipment, time and money each method requires.
  • Learn how to avoid common food preservation mistakes
  • Take home research-based recipes and complete food preservation instructions from your Polk County Extension office.

No food preparation or actual food preservation will be done in class. The purpose of the class taught by a Nutrition and Health program specialist, Mary Krisco, MS, RD is to help beginners decide which type of food preservation would be practical for them and to remind experienced canners of new food safety procedures.

Class fee: $5   Spaces are limited.  Light refreshments will be served.
