Pressure Canning for Beginners - Sunday September 29th, 2013 1-4pm
Learn to use a pressure canner and expand your range of home-preserved foods to include low acid vegetables, soups, stews, sauces, chilis, and more.
Home-canned jams, jellies and pickles are great! In our first class of this series on Sept 15th we will cover how all these goods are processed in a boiling water bath. Once you complete the basics in that class you are ready to take the next step in canning, which is learning how to use a pressure canner.
With a pressure canner you are able to safely can vegetables, meats, soups, stews, sauces, chilis, and all sorts of deliciousness. Jams, jellies and pickles are wonderful flavor enhancers that add to a meal. Pressure canning lets you preserve the main course.
In Pressure Canning for Beginners, you will learn about types of pressure canners, pressure canner safety, safely canning low-acid foods, and how pressure canning can be used to feed your family.
Participants will take one pressure canned item home with them along with recipes and information that cover the basic canning categories (vegetables, meat & soup)
Class will be taught by Master Food Preserver Steve Rudicel at the Zane Grey Estate in Altadena @ 396 Mariposa St. Gates open at 12:30; a parking attendant will direct you where to park on the property. Car pooling recommended if possible.
