AMARILLO – Three different sessions of “Preserving the Harvest – Food Preservation Class” will be presented in August by Amy Wagner, Texas AgriLife Extension Service family and consumer sciences agent in Potter County.
Those attending the sessions will learn the basics of water-bath and pressure canning, freezing and dehydrating foods, and about home food preservation safety, Wagner said.
Each session will run from 9 a.m. until noon in the AgriLife Extension office for Potter County, 3301 E. 10th Ave. The session schedule is:
- Aug. 9 – Freezing and Dehydrating.
- Aug. 16 – Water-Bath and Pressure Canning.
- Aug. 23 –Water-Bath and Pressure Canning (continued).
The cost is $50 for the three sessions, which includes a training notebook, along with the University of Georgia’s “So Easy to Preserve” book, snacks and preserved products, Wagner said.
Space is limited to 15, so those planning to attend should RSVP by Aug. 6, she said.
“We will be canning salsa, jams and jellies, freezing beans and dehydrating bananas,” Wagner said. “If time permits, we will preserve more products.”
