Have you ever wanted to learn how to preserve the food you grow? The WVU-Braxton & Clay County Extension Services will be offering a Food Preservation Workshop on June 27th from 9:00am to 4pm at the Clay County Middle School. Some benefits of preserving food include eating healthier meals, save cooking time, save money, carry on family traditions, “go green” by not purchasing fruits and vegetables shipped from long distances, control what goes into the food you eat, and have access to quality fruits and vegetables year round. The workshop is a hands on canning experience including use of a pressure canner. Please pre-register by calling (304)587-4267 by June 20th or e-mail amil.cook@mail.wvu.edu. Cost is $10 per person and includes lunch and all supplies. All foods canned that day will be available for participants to take home at the end of the workshop.
