Preserved Foods Workshop at Butte County Fair


Thank you to the UC Master Food Preservers (a public service and outreach program under the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources) for presenting a very comprehensive and fun workshop!

We were a small but mighty group that learned safe canning practices, including do’s and don’ts. Water bath canning and steam canning were demonstrated live, and participants took home their own jar of pickled onions, freshly canned. Additionally, participants won prizes of books on canning, canning utensils and those oh so prized canning jars. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we look forward to planning a second workshop this fall. Make sure you check this page for more upcoming workshops throughout the year!!
