Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is hosting a home canning class at its McClennan County location at 4224 Cobbs Drive in Waco. Class will be held on Saturday, August 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be open to the public.

This hands-on class will teach you to prepare and can food in a water bath canner and pressure canner. Instructor Colleen Foleen, in partnership with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, will teach you how to prepare foods and jars, following a tested and approved recipe, and can foods that will be finished and ready to take home at the end. You will learn about different types of canners and how to prepare different high acid foods including fruits, tomatoes, jams, jellies and pickled products.

Home canning of your own produce as ingredients can be a very economical way to serve healthy meals for your family.
