Maeschen teaches 4-Hers with canning workshop

‘Tis the season for 4-H projects and workshops! Thanks to Janet Maeschen, Master Food Preserver, 4-Hers had the opportunity to attend a canning workshop on June 21. It was a great day to learn how to can pickled carrots and to finish two projects in the process! To better accommodate the youth, a morning and afternoon shift were offered.  

The canning method that was used at this workshop is called “hot packing.” This is the practice of heating freshly prepared food to boiling, simmering it and then promptly filling jars loosely with the boiled food.  Each participant was able to learn the many steps it takes to complete this process.

Plans are in the works for another canning workshop in July for making jams and jellies.
