Are you interested in taking your canning beyond jams?  Come join us on October 5th when Melinda Hill of OSU Extension will discuss methods and recipes for canning your own soups and meats!  The class starts at 6:15pm and will probably last a little over an hour.  Please follow this link to register.  While the class is free, it could possibly fill up.

Before the class, from 5:30 – 6pm, Melinda will also be onsite to perform pressure canner checks.  If you haven’t had your canner checked in awhile and you’re interested in making sure it’s working properly, you should bring it by.  Canner checks are $5.
