Hands On Food Preservation Classes


Nebraskans are excited as they prepare their gardens anticipating what they want to home preserve throughout the growing season.  Step-by-step instructions from approved, research tested recipes must be followed to assure foods are preserved safely.

Nebraska Extension is offering hands-on workshops in North Platte, Imperial, and Grant to guide the home food preservation process.  

In North Platte on June 7 and in Imperial on June 13 from 4:00 to 7:00 PM home canners will be guided through the steps of preserving grape jelly and tomato salsa.   On July 13 in North Platte from 4:00 to 7:00 PM participants will learn how to safely pressure can low-acid foods such as carrots.  This class will be replicated on July 15 in Grantl.
