Enjoy learning about canning high-quality fruit and fruit pie fillings with Oregon State University Extension Service at a public workshop with a hands-on lab.

Two sessions will be taught by Glenda Hyde, OSU Extension Service community educator with Master Food Preserver volunteers on Wednesday, September 4. Participants can choose a morning session, 9 a.m. to noon, or afternoon, 1 to 4 p.m. During the class, participants will learn about the selection and steps to safely can fruit and fruit pie fillings in a boiling-water canner. Then, participants will have some fun preparing a jar of fruit and a jar of fruit pie filling to take home and share with family and friends. Everyone will get up-to-date, tested recipes from reliable resources and tips on entering preserved foods at the county fair.

The cost of the class is $15 per person, and can be paid that day. Register in advance by calling the OSU Extension Service in Redmond, 541-548-6088 by Friday, August 30. Class size is limited.
