Your gardens will soon be filled with fresh fruits and vegetables but before you begin preserving make sure you are ready! Updated publications with safe and tested preservation recipes can be found
at your local extension office. Publications are available for canning produce such as apples, cherries, sweet corn, cucumbers, peaches, beans, tomatoes, strawberries, peppers, and vegetables! If you are interested in canning a food that you don’t have a recipe for, just contact us and we are happy to find you a safe and trusted preservation recipe!
Individuals of all ages are encouraged to exhibit a prized item, creation, and/or skill in Open Class at your county fair.

New dates have been added to the pressure gauge testing schedule. Please drop off your gauge at least one day before the date listed for each county and we will test your gauge and make recommendations if needed. It is recommended to have your pressure gauge tested each year before you begin canning your harvest! Contact Ashley at email@example.com or (785) 524-4432.
