Food preservation and canning class at Old Mill Feed and Garden

by Nate Rafn

Old Mill Feed and Garden will host a food preservation class on Saturday, July 9th, at 2pm. The class will cover basic food preservation techniques, including canning, drying, and freezing. Attendance is free, although registration is required.

According to Christie Henderson, co-owner of Old Mill Feed and Garden, the class is aimed at beginners and experienced canners alike.

"Attendees that preserved food in the past and want to begin again and those getting started for the first time see the importance of being informed of the latest safety information, techniques and appropriate equipment," says Hendersen.

The instructor will also provide recipes and samples of preserved foods.

As home gardening becomes more popular and families look to be more self-sufficient, interest in food preservation is high.

"We are seeing an increase in the public’s interest to grow their own food and generally know where their food is coming from," says Hendersen. "With this surge in personal gardens, popularity in farmer’s markets and locally grown meats, our customers are recognizing the value, satisfaction and economy of being able to safely preserve these foods for yearlong consumption. We hope everybody leaves here excited about the possibilities and are eager to get started."
