The Lake County Hunger Task Force will offer canning lessons on Saturday, Aug. 22 and Tuesday, Aug. 25.
The canning of fruits and vegetables will be taught at the Kelseyville Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of Third and Church. Both sessions will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The cost is $20, of which $10 will be refunded the day of the class.
Pears and tomatoes will be featured, as those are the most abundant crops in Lake County at this time of year.
The Hunger Task Force feels that canning is one of the best ways to take advantage of the abundance of crops, but is becoming a lost art.
All participants should come dressed for a hands-on experience in each step of the process. Please do not wear sandals, and remove all rings prior to arrival.
Upon completion of the lessons, each participating household will be given a water bath canner, a book, and a jar lifter, unless they are repeating the class. Please, no children.
Please call 707-277-9227 as soon as possible to register – class size is limited to 12.
