Imagine how great it would be to open your cupboard and pull out a jar of your very own home-canned meat stew, vegetable soup, or salmon fillets! In this workshop, we’ll use a pressure canner to preserve delicious baked beans by sealing them in glass jars. We’ll also cover the basics of modern home pressure canning techniques, equipment, safety issues, and resources for the home canner.
Instructor Bio: Lindsay Kearns learned home food preservation techniques from her parents, who had her assist with their annual tomato sauce canning marathons from a young age. Despite those labourious beginnings, her love of food in jars grew with her into adulthood, where it nests well into her general obsession for all things do-it-yourself. Her favourite pickle is bread-and-butter made with sliced cucumbers and onions, and this is her fourth year of teaching canning classes outside of her own kitchen.
