Spring is here and beautiful days are ahead. Time to preserve some of the fresh produce to enjoy in the fall and winter time. New to canning or an experienced canner? Whatever your situation, you are welcome to join N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center's Home Food Preservation Series (HFP) to be held in person, starting in May and running through September 2022.

Most workshops will be on Fridays except for the first session. Sessions will be from 10 AM to 1 PM (This includes educational component and hands-on component). This is a time to learn, enjoy and not be rushed. We will cover boiling water and pressure canning foods, jams & jellies, pickling, freezing, drying, and much more.

Canning sessions are in-person and space is limited to 15 people. Registration is required for each session being offered, you can pick and choose which sessions you would like to attend. Each session will open up for registration 3 weeks prior to the scheduled workshop, schedule is as follows (you are able to set a reminder notification for when the session is open for registration):

May 27, 2022 - Canning Green Beans
June 10, 2022 - Making Salsa
June 24, 2022- Dehydration
July 8, 2022 - Pickling
July 22, 2022 - Freezing
Aug. 26, 2022 - Fermentation
Sept. 9, 2022 - Canning Meat

Note: Because these workshops will be hands-on, the canned foods once processed, cannot be moved for 24 hours. Therefore, you will NOT be able to take jars home on the same day of the class but may pick it up the following day/week, or at the next HFP workshop that you are registered for.
