Want to preserve some of this season’s bounty for the winter? High acid fruits and veggies are easy to can with a simple water bath method. Come learn how!

Canning can be a little daunting to some of us especially in a time when everyone is talking about food safety. Come practice with us. Yes, there are some rules, BUT they become a part of the routine after you have done it a couple of times. Lots of people have tested and tried many canning recipes, both traditional and contemporary, to put your mind at ease. We’ll show you the tools, can a few recipes and point you to some more resources for you to explore on your own.

You can either bring 2 wide mouth pint jars including bands or we will have some for sale at the meetup at cost. We’ll provide the produce, the jar lids, and will bring all the other equipment. You will be taking home 2 pints of canned, finished produce… the plan, which will be dependent on availability at the time, is to can peaches, and a tomato salsa!

Cost: $30-$40 sliding scale. This is a class with a lot of up-front costs so we need a deposit by August 10 in order to keep your spot for you. It will be non-refundable, though it can be transferred to someone else if you can find another person to take your place. Info on where to send your $10 deposit will be sent to you after you sign up.

Co-sponsored by NOFA-NH and the Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group.
