Canning and Preserving Made Easy – 2020 Summer Class Series

During a time when food supply chains are uncertain, knowing how to preserve your own produce has never been more important. If you’ve been considering learning more about home canning, you will have three great opportunities in Henderson County this summer. The N.C. Cooperative Extension, Henderson County Center will be hosting 3 different hands-on workshops designed to teach the basics to those new to canning and preserving. You may pick and choose the session you want to attend, or register for all three.

What Will You Learn? Family and Consumer Science agents from both Polk and Henderson County will be leading the workshops to introduce you to topics like:

  • Filling jars to the right level
  • Choosing the right produce for canning
  • Cold and hot jar packing methods
  • Pressure cooker safety
  • How long canned foods can safely be stored

How Much Does It Cost? There will be a $15 materials fee for each individual workshop.

How to Register: Due to social distancing measures, we will be limiting class size. Pre-registration is necessary; please call (828) 697-4891 or mail check to                  N.C. Cooperative Extension of Henderson County, 100 Jackson Park Rd, Hendersonville, NC 28792
