Introduction to Canning

Canning is a great way to preserve food you harvest from your garden or buy at the local market. Are you curious about canning but worried about the safety implications? Philadelphia-based canning teacher, blogger, and cookbook author Marisa McClellan will walk you through the basics of boiling water bath canning and set your fears to rest. The class will include information on food safety, best canning practices, and recommendations on how to store your newly canned goods, as well as provide plenty of time to ask all of your questions. Each student will take home a jar of the preserve that you make together in class as well as a copy of the recipe.
