K-DOCK 92.9

The Coos County Master Food Preserver volunteers are offering a pressure canning workshop on Saturday, June 7th, at the OSU Extension Office in Myrtle Point.
Times and methods have changed over the years, and some misinformation and unsafe practices are prevalent on the internet, and in books and magazines. That’s why the MFP volunteers offer this workshop; to provide participants with research-based recipes and methods.

Class participants will learn the basics of pressure canning: how to fill jars, load the canner, etc. The how-tos and what-ifs of canning will be thoroughly explored, as will food safety and the proper care of canning equipment. Participants are encouraged to bring their pressure canner gauges for testing.

This free service is offered to the public year-round at the Extension Service. The class is $10, and will be held from 10am to 2pm. Pre-registration is recommended by calling 541-572-5263, ext. 240.
