Clemson Extension Offers Canning Classes

  • Thursday, May 9, 2013

Canning season has arrived!  Clemson Extension Service will be offering food preservation classes again this year.  All classes will teach participants how to use current, USDA tested, canning methods to preserve foods.  The first class will take place from 10am – 2pm on Saturday, May 25, at Cypress Gardens.  The cost is $30. The topic will be “Jams, Jellies and Spreads”.  Participants will take home a copy of the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving, handouts and items prepared during the class. 
Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service is your local resource for research based food preservation information.  Some changes have been made to home canning methods over the years to improve the safety of home canned items. Consumers can find current information at www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/.
More classes will be offered throughout the year to include Freezing and Drying Foods, Pressure Canning ( Vegetables ), Water Bath Canning ( Fruits and Tomatoes ) and Pickling.  Canner testing is also available.  Call 719-4140 x 116 or e-mail Gayle Williford at gwillif@clemson.edu for more information.
The Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to people of all ages, regardless of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital or family status and is an equal opportunity employer.
