Hands-on canning workshops are great ways to learn the safest techniques for canning and preserving our summertime bounty. This is the last Buncombe County Cooperative Extension hands-on class scheduled for the summer.
Class requires pre-registration and registration is confirmed when payment is received. The cost for the class is $5 and it will be held at the Buncombe County Cooperative Extension Office at 94 Coxe Avenue in Asheville.
- Putting Tomatoes By! Wednesday, August 11, 2010 - 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
One of the best foods for learning how to can is tomatoes. In this hands-on class we cover canning tomatoes with a water bath canner and a pressure canner. Because we cover both methods of canning, this class allows you to experience both techniques. We will also discuss freezing and dehydrating tomatoes as other options for preserving them for future use.
