2015 Garden Tour

Food Preservation Class

Spending some time now learning how to preserve that produce properly will allow you and your family to enjoy that summer bounty when winter winds start blowing. There is nothing like opening a home canned jar of tomatoes for stews or a warm casserole on a cold winter day. Better yet, how about fresh preserves to give as presents during the holidays!  Participating in a home food preservation class can help you to do that and much more.

Classes will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday evenings from May 12th to June 2nd in Warrensburg at the University of Missouri Extension Center located at 135 W. Market, Warrensburg, Missouri.  For more information on the classes, click here for the press release.  Registration forms are due May 5th.
