Reinbeck Courier

Grundy County Extension and Outreach is offering an introductory food preservation class to be held at the Grundy Center Community Center on October 1, 2014 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.

This workshop is intended for those wanting to learn how to safely preserve food and will also serve as a good refresher for those who have experience preserving food. The workshop will cover canning, freezing, drying, pickling and making jams and jellies.

Home food preservation is not difficult but it does require following specific directions exactly. Always use tested recipes and directions from a reliable source. Ignoring recommended procedures can result in home canned products that will make you and your family very ill. Participants will receive current food preservation publications and additional research based resources will be on display.

Pre-registration is required and there is a small fee for the class. Registration deadline is April 15. Please call the Grundy County Extension office at 319-824-6979 to register. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach programs are available to all without regard to race, color, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, sex, marital status, disability, or status as a U.S. veteran. Inquiries can be directed to the Director of Equal Opportunity and Compliance, 3280 Beardshear Hall, (515) 294-7612.
