Join the UCCE Master Food Preservers from Central Sierra for a Pressure Canning Vegetables class on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, from 1 – 4pm. The class is at the Alameda County Environmental Health, 1131 Harbor Bay Parkway, Alameda.
 
Pressure canning opens up a fabulous world of shelf-stable broth, soups, meats, and vegetables to fill your pantry. If you are curious (or nervous) about pressure canning, come and learn why certain foods must be pressure canned, how pressure canners work, the multiple safety features on today’s pressure canners, and the complete pressure canning process. UCCE Master Food Preservers will conduct several live demonstrations.
 
Multiple styles of pressure canners will be shown and discussed to give you a strong understanding of what’s available. Canning scraps to help reduce food waste and stretch your food budget will also be discussed.
 
This will be an information/demonstration packed class.  You’ll leave with lots of recipes and ideas to try on your own at home.
 
Class is $15. Pre-registration is required at http://ucanr.edu/vegetables-mar11. Contact Robin Cleveland at rkcleveland@ucanr.edu or 530-621-5528 for more information.
