'From Garden to Jar' Fruit, Vegetable Canning Workshop (Updated)

July 25, 2018 - Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Shelby County will be hosting a canning workshop on Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. 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 20th. The cost for this workshop is $25 per person. Each participant will take home a jar of salsa, pickles and jam. A special thank you to Shelby County Farm Bureau and East Texas Press (formerly Our Town Times) for sponsoring this program. If you would like to register, please contact Daphne at 936-598-7744.
