Learn to Safely Preserve Your Summer Vegetables

One of the things I love most about summer is the abundance of fresh vegetables. Summer at our house consists of picking the garden and preparing the vegetables for the winter months. Home food preservation is a wonderful way to be able to have a taste of summer during the cold winter months. The key to home food preservation is to make sure you are preserving your foods safely. The Nash County Cooperative Extension Center will be hosting a canning workshop series through the summer. Participants will learn how to safely preserve summer vegetables using a pressure canner. The series will consist of 4 workshops focusing on 4 different vegetables. Participants do not have to attend every class. They can pick the ones they are most interested in attending.

The cost to attend is $10.00 per workshop and will cover everything you’ll need for each class. Space is limited so register early. Classes will begin at 5:30 pm and be held at the Nash County Cooperative Extension Ag Center 1006 Eastern Avenue, Room 102 in Nashville. For more information and to register please contact Regina Moseley, Family & Consumer Sciences Agent at 252-459-9810 or Regina_Moseley@ncsu.edu.

Space is limited so register early!
