On August 18, 2016 Master Food Preservers will offer 2 identical sessions of a class on preserving tomatoes. Plan to join us at the session which best suits your schedule. 

We will be creating a tomato jam to learn the basics of Boiling Water Canning (water bath) and making crushed tomatoes to learn how to use a Pressure Canner. Both products will make tasty additions to your pantry!

Each class is limited to the first 24 registrants.  Please register and pay online by August 17, 2016 and bring a printed or digital copy of your successful proof of payment email to class.  Closed toe shoes are recommended.  We have ‘loaner’ aprons if you don’t bring one from home. 

Cancellation Policy:  No refunds one week prior to workshop as material will already have been purchased.  Thank you!

We will also be offering free testing of your pressure canning gauges at this class.

If you have any questions, please write us at: uccemfp@ucdavis.edu.
