Not produced the old-fashioned way, and therefore safer.

COLLEGEVILLE PA – Remember those delicious home canned goods Grandma used to put up from her backyard garden? She wouldn’t recognize today’s canning procedures; they’ve changed dramatically over the years. To ensure modern cooks don’t endanger their family’s health by following out-of-date canning instructions, Montgomery County Cooperative Extension has scheduled two workshops next week to demonstrate proper home-canning methods.

The three-hour classes will be held on Monday (June 7, 2010) from 6:30-9:30 p.m., and again Tuesday (June 8) from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., both at the Montgomery County 4-H Center, 1015 Bridge Road (Route 113), Creamery PA. Participants will learn the latest methods of using a boiling water bath and a pressure canner. They will receive a comprehensive Cooperative Extension canning book and take home two jars of properly processed fruits and vegetables.

Registration is required and class size is limited; its cost is $30 per person or $45 per couple. For more information, call the extension office at 610-489-4315.
