Food preservation classes being offered

The OSU Extension Service, Family Community Health (FCH) Program, Clackamas County has a trained group of Family Food Education (FFE) volunteers ready to teach food preservation classes in Clackamas County.

The classes are designed to provide instruction and hands on opportunities to practice food preservation techniques that build self-confidence and skills for beginners in food preservation and spark a renewed interest for the more advanced food preservers.

Participants can select from a variety of topics including pressure canning, food drying, pickled vegetables and making tomato products such as salsa and sauce. Additional classes will be added throughout the season.

The schedule of upcoming classes includes Treats from the Food Dryer to be held Tuesday; Fresh Packed and Quick Pickled Vegetables July 30 and Bring on the Tomatoes to be held Aug. 20.

Preregistration is required and registration fee is nonrefundable.

Cost is $30 per class, which includes instructional packet, recipes and sample product to take home. All classes are held at the Extension Annex, located at 200 Warner-Milne Road in Oregon City.
