Have you thought about canning your own produce for the first time? Maybe you have a garden and are growing an abundance of different vegetables that you want to enjoy year round, but you weren’t sure about the different ways to can. Or, if you have experience with canning in the past, do you know if you are canning your produce safely? Do you know which types of canning methods are appropriate for the different types of produce? If you’re not sure, then the presentation on Canning Your Produce, held at the Centennial Library, might help you find the answers! This presentation, taught by the University of Florida Extension, will talk about water bath canning versus pressure canning, the pH of certain fruits and vegetables and why that matters, killing botulism, the right canning equipment and procedures, and more.
The Centennial Library is located at 5740 Moog Road in Holiday, FL. The presentation will be held on Thursday, October 4th, from 2pm to 3pm. The class is free to attend, but please register on EventBrite to reserve your space: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/canning-your-produce-presentation-tickets-50067019804?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
Canning can be a great way to increase your fruit and vegetable consumption, but it’s important to do it right. Food safety comes into play with canning, as it does with anything related to food. Make sure you know what you’re doing before you start, or, verify that you have been doing it right all along. Come out and learn the correct ways and meet other canning enthusiasts!
If Holiday is too far and this isn’t too last minute: this same class will also be taught in Dade City at the Stallings building, also called the One Stop Shop, located at 15029 14th Street, Dade City, FL 33523. The class is this coming Monday, September 24th, from 2pm to 3pm.
