The Marathon County UW-Extension is offering five programs this year on Food Preservation; Intro to Canning and Food Preservation; Jams and Jellies; Pickling Vegetables; Canning Tomato Products; and Canning Meats, Poultry and Fish.

This program series will be offered on five dates and interested participants can sign up for as many sessions as you desire.

Intro to Canning and Food Preservation will be offered on Wednesday May 28th from 6-8:00pm. This program will provide a overview of canning procedures and the science behind them. Learn the difference between water bath and pressure canners and when to use each. An brief overview of pickling and dehydrating will also be discussed. This is a great “introduction” class for new canners or those who may need a refresher.

The Jams and Jellies program will be offered on Wednesday, June 18 from 6-8:30 pm. This program will provide information and tips for making jams, jellies, preserves, conserves, and marmalades. These are all fruit products that are jellied or thickened. These soft spreads are fun to prepare and add class, as well as character, to any meal. They also make excellent gifts anytime throughout the year.

Pickling Vegetables program will be offered on Wednesday, July 16 from 6-8:30 pm. We will be making Dilly Beans. This boiling water canner method preserving green beans is a quick, fun food preservation method.

Canning Tomato Products will be offered on Tuesday, August 6 from 6-8:30 pm. Tomatoes are probably the most popular home canned food. Canned tomatoes are excellent for preparing chili suppers, spaghetti sauces, casseroles and an endless variety of meal accompaniments. Information will be shared on canning tomatoes and salsa.

Canning Meats, Poultry and Fish will be offered on Thursday, October 2nd from 6-8:30 pm. Ever thought about canning this years’ venison? Learn how to pack using either hot or raw pack method for meats, poultry and fish. Learn how to use a pressure canner.
