Water Bath Canning Class

Water Bath Canning Class

Interested in learning to can your own fresh foods? Do you have a desire for fresh food with no additives and preservatives in your pantry? Well, we have a desire to save this age-old art of living! We would love to have you join our Water Bath Canning Class. You don't even need to have a garden to benefit––you can do this at home by visiting the local Farmer's Market and purchase fresh fruits and veggies. This Water Bath Canning Class is great for the seasoned canner as a refresher or as a beginner.

In our Water Bath Canning Class we will provide a hands on environment for learning the most popular canning method, the hot water bath. We will cover the equipment necessary, the process, water bath vs. the pressure cooker method, and safety. We will choose two items to can (probably tomatoes and a fruit) and using a hands on approach we will complete the process of hot water bath canning.

Each participant will receive two jars of a canned item and a Fraker Acres Canning Basics notebook with instructions and recipes. Class maximum is 4 people. All food, jars, supplies and instruction will be supplied with the class. We ask that each participant bring their own lunch the day of the class and wear comfy shoes (we will be standing a great deal of the time).
