Food Preservation Workshop

BRENTWOOD - Tomatoes have taken over flower gardens, beans are sprouting next to the bee balm, and more lawns and backyards are now filled with vegetables. Even small gardens can produce an overabundance of vegetables at the peak of their harvest season. Preserving the overflow can help you store high-quality food for later use.

Whether you’re preserving food for the first time or have many years of experience, it’s important to make sure you are using current, research-based methods and recipes.

Join UNH Cooperative Extension this summer at a home food preservation workshop on Tues., August 6, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Rockingham County Complex, Hilton Auditorium, 117 North Road in Brentwood.

Alice Mullen, Field Specialist, will cover the latest research-based methods and recipes, answer questions, and share experiences about these topics: an overview of preserving food safely at home, jams and jellies, pickling, canning fruits and vegetables, and freezing food.

Pre-registration is required; contact Lynn Harrison at 603‐679‐5616 or email at Registration fee is $5.00 per person, payable at the door.

UNH Cooperative Extension provides New Hampshire citizens with research-based education and information, enhancing their ability to make informed decisions that strengthen youth, families and communities, sustain natural resources, and improve the economy.
