Canning Workshop February 16, 2013

Green Market at Piedmont Park - Atlanta, Georgia

http://www.piedmontpark.org/programs/canning.html Preserving food was a way of life for generations gone by. Piedmont Park Conservancy is happy to say its back and it¢?â�¢s better than ever in the Park. Now you can preserve foods that respect your preferences for healthy, local and sustainable products, supporting local farmers and green markets ¢?â?œ with no preservatives or artificial colors. All workshops will be conducted by Lyn Deardorff, a forty-year canner. Lyn holds a Serve Safe Food Safety Certificate and has worked in various capacities in the Food Industry. She has also received approval from the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture to process jarred food products in the past for public consumption. You will receive a notebook with recipes and full instruction in canning along with tips and guidelines. Three products will be canned: a fruit, a pickle, and a tomato-based product which will be chosen according to the season. You will leave with the knowledge to do home-based canning on your own and will have 3 jarred preserved products at the end of the workshop. All supplies are included. $75.00 for the complete workshop.
