Interested in learning how to make your own shelf-stable, canned foods?

Canning jars

Join in on the fun on September 23, 2021, at 10 a.m. to learn about basic canning procedures, how to prevent food safety risks and food spoilage when canning, where to find safe recipes, and the science behind making a shelf-stable product through a presentation and hands-on workshop.

Masks will be required throughout the workshop and participants will practice social distancing. If you are not able to wear a mask, covering both the mouth and nose, for the entire workshop, please signup for our virtual class instead (coming soon). Refunds will not be issued if you choose not to attend in person on the day of the event.

We’ll also explain how to use the different types of canning methods, water-bath and pressure canning, to process foods for shelf stability. Totally new to canning? Don’t worry. We will provide an introduction to canning during this workshop. If you’ve been canning a while, you might be surprised at some recommended changes over the years.

Class cost is $5, cash or check. Check payable to Duplin County, mailed to P.O. Box 949, Kenansville, NC 28349. You may also drop off your $5 during our business hours.
