Learn about how to safely preserve food at home using a boiling water bath and a pressure canner. Classes are geared to teach those who are new to home canning the basics and provide a refresher to experienced home canners. Sessions are scheduled for the first Thursday of each month from May thru September beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Love Center Food Pantry (1292 Massillon Rd., Millersburg, OH 44654). Topics include: Hands on Water Bath Canning, Freezing, Hands on Pressure Canning, Salsa and Making Jerky and Fruit Leather.

The USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning manual will be available for purchase from OSU Extension - $20 each (cash or check only). Participants may also have their pressure canners tested for safety and dial gauge pressure canners tested for accuracy before the programs for a small fee.

Taught by Kate Shumaker, OSU Extension Holmes County Family and Consumer Sciences Educator
