Have you ever thought about trying your hand at canning and said, “I just don't know where to begin?” Well, here’s the answer! On July 14, join millions of food lovers curious about canning to learn the ease of preserving fresh food as part of National Can-It-Forward Day.
Whether you are new to canning or a seasoned pro, canning is always more fun when shared with friends. Make plans to join us at The Haven as we celebrate the bounty of summer with a special canning class. We've designed the class to feature the freshest seasonal produce, supplied by the Local Food Hub, and to demonstrate the basics of water bath canning. We'll show you how to safely process fresh tomatoes and peaches, and give you confidence and motivation to expand your canning horizons!
Registration for this class is $20.00, and proceeds benefit the Kay's Kitchen programs at The Haven at First and Market. This is a hands-on class, where participants learn as they work, and class participants will take home a jar or two of the finished products. (Special discount rate of $15.00 applies to "Friends of the Market". Not a friend yet? You're missing out - get your Friends badge today!)
If this class isn't for you, maybe you'll celebrate the day by holding your OWN home canning party? We invite you to visite FreshPreserving.com and Canning Across America for inspiration. On July 14, they'll offer live, streaming web-TV coverage, including chat, tips and more! Sign up now to get email updates on the day's events, and get ready to ...
Can It Forward!
