Juicy ripe peaches, snapping fresh green beans, sweet grape jelly and crunchy dill pickles – nothing tastes better than home-canned foods.
For many, preserving these and other foods at home can be an intimidating process. With a little knowledge, the right skills and practice, anyone will find that it is easy to preserve fresh fruits and vegetables at home.
Interested parties are invited to bone up on their skills at a Home Canning for Beginners class from 1-6 p.m. Thursday, May 14 at Lane Agri-Park, 315 John Rice Blvd.
The class will help beginners with canning foods safely at home. The class fills up fast, so pre-registration is recommended. The fee of $8 may be paid at the door. Basic home canning techniques will be demonstrated by Pat Whitaker, Extension Agent and Pam Sites, fce Volunteer. Participants will receive a UT Extension Canning Foods Publication.

Testing of dial gauge home canner lids for accuracy will be available. For registration contact the UT-TSU Rutherford County Extension Office: 898-7710 Office hours M-F 8:00-4:30 or Pat Whitaker, Extension Agent, pwhitak1@utk.edu Programs in agriculture and natural resources, 4-H youth development, family and consumer sciences, and resource development.

Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.

This sounds great! I wish it would also be offered on an evening or weekend so those of us at jobs could learn these things as well!
