Workshop On Preserving Tuna

The tuna boats are in and it’s time to preserve the harvest. The Master Food Preservers of Coos County, volunteers with the Oregon State University Extension Service, will be holding a tuna canning workshop on September 7th, at the Extension Office in Myrtle Point.

This hands-on workshop provides newbie canners with all the information they need on how to properly prepare and preserve the catch. Experienced canners will also benefit as they ensure they are up-to-date on the proper methods and times required. Participants are encouraged to bring their canners for a full inspection, particularly those using dial gauges as it is recommended they be checked each year. Space is limited, so call now to sign up, 541-572-5263, ext. 292. The workshop will be held from 10am to 2pm, and the cost is $15. Participants may wish to bring a sack lunch or snack. They will receive a jar of delicious canned tuna to take home and enjoy later.
