If you are interested in learning what it takes to preserve food safely, or perhaps you simply need a refresher, this class is for you. Yes! You Can:  Preserving Practice Pressure Canning - Carrots 

This hands-on workshop will begin in the classroom and then head to the kitchen, where participants can process their own jar of carrots. During the first half of the class, we will cover canning basics, the importance of using a pressure canner, and explain low-acid foods. The second half will be spent in the kitchen, processing carrots. Participants will learn a fun new skill and have a jar to take home.  
Participants will learn the basics of home food preservation, food safety guidelines, and the most recent methods used to preserve food safely. Additionally, participants can have the dial gauge on their pressure canners tested; just bring your lid with the gauge attached.
