Food Preservation Basics w/ Hands On Water Bath Canning

Description: This class will discuss basic food preservation techniques including vacuum sealing / freezing, dehydration, water bath canning and pressure canning.  We will discuss which methods to use for different types of food and and their uses, view several tools, discuss other tools available and review safety guidelines for the various methods.  All students will make one batch of jam/jelly/preserves using Pomona's pectin, a low sweetener pectin for crafting jams and jellies with amazing flavors.  All materials will be provided and students will be able to choose from one of several flavors, using either honey or sugar in the recipe.  Each batch makes approximately four or five 8 oz jars.  Students will take home all of their flavor or can swap with other willing students.
