From Garden to Jar Fruit, Vegetable Canning Workshop

July 7, 2017 - (Flyer) - Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Shelby County will be hosting a canning workshop on Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 1pm to 4pm at the Extension office, 266 Nacogdoches Street, Center, TX 75935.

The focus of this fun, interactive workshop will be on making and canning tasty pickles, jam and salsa safely. An abundance of home grown fruits and vegetables often triggers the desire to can foods at home. While this can be a fun and rewarding way to keep foods long after the season ends, care must be taken to assure that foods canned at home are safe to eat. Attend this fun and informative food preservation workshop if you would like to learn hands-on how to make and preserve fruit and vegetables. The 6th edition of So Easy to Preserve by Cooperative Extension Service of The University of Georgia will be available for purchase at a discount of $15 per book.

Registration and payment in advance is required and due by July 12th. The cost for this workshop is $20 per person. Each participant will take home a jar of salsa, pickles and jam. A special thank you to Shelby County Farm Bureau for sponsoring this program. If you would like to register, please contact Daphne at 936-598-7744. For more information, contact Jheri-Lynn McSwain, CEA-FCS at 936-598-7744.
