Workshop on preserving produce offered July 31
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Tomatoes, green beans, and zucchini - way too much to eat, or even give away. What can home gardeners do with all that wonderful garden produce? Preserve it and continue to enjoy it through the winter months. A hands-on day of learning methods of food preservation: canning, freezing and more is planned for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 31, at the Pecatonica High School Family and Consumer Sciences kitchens in Blanchardville.

The food preservation workshop is open to the public. The cost to attend is $25, and includes take home materials with recipes and the foods, jars, and supplies used to do hands-on preservation in class.

The extension has provided research-based information about food preservation for almost 100 years.

The class is sponsored by the Green and Lafayette County UW-Extension offices. Call (608) 328-9440 for more information or to get a registration brochure. Space is limited to 30 participants - ask about scholarships to attend at no cost.
