Join us on Tuesday, August 20th for another fun and educational class with the Master Food Preservers of Orange County! The end of summer is coming, and it's time to use what's left in the garden. This class will help you do just that. 

First, our Summer Squash Pickle recipe is a great way to use your abundance of summer squashes. Now when your neighbors leave you a pile of zucchini in the middle of the night you'll know what to do with it! 

Next, have you ever wanted to use your own canned corn for recipes & learn more about Pressure Canning? In our August class, you'll be pressure canning fresh corn.

There will be 2 identical workshops offered.  Each class is limited to the first 24 registrants. Register and pay online by August 19, 2019 and bring a printed or digital copy of your confirmation proof-of-payment email to class. Closed-toe shoes are recommended. Loaner aprons are available or bring yours from home.

Cancellation Policy: No refunds one week prior to workshop as materials will have been purchased.

The city of Irvine has removed the left turn pocket in front of the property so if you are coming from the west you must drive to the light at Modjeska and make a U-turn. When you are approaching the property you will see chain link fence and then a block wall fence. The entrance is just at the end of the block wall – see attached photo.

Please note that this is a recent change and using directions on a mobile device will not alert you to these changes.
