A lot has changed in the science of food preservation. Learn research tested techniques for canning high acid foods such as tomatoes, pickles, fruits, and sauerkraut using a water bath canner and a steam canner.

Pressure Canning

Does the thought of using a pressure canner intimidate you? This class focuses on canning low acid foods that you can’t safely preserve in a water bath canner. Low acid foods you might want to can include meats, fish, beans, corn, etc. We will show you all the steps for pressure canning and remove the fear factor so you feel confident operating a pressure canner and preserving fresh foods that you can enjoy all year long.
