The hands-on classes will take participants step by step through the process of using a pressure cooker. “Food Preservation Made Easy” will provide an introduction to the scientific research behind safe food preservation and the best practices to assure that home-preserved foods look beautiful, taste fresh and will not make anyone sick.

The course is intended for beginners and veterans alike.
