Learn Home Canning at Classes in Springfield and Willard

University of Missouri Extension will host a three-hour hands-on “Home Canning the Safe Way” class at two different times, dates and locations in Springfield and Willard.

Both a 9 a.m. class and 1:30 p.m. class will be held on Monday, May 11 at the Willard Community Center, 222 W. Jackson, Willard, Mo.

Classes will also be held at 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26 in the gym at Second Baptist Church, 3111 East Battlefield, Springfield, Mo.

To accommodate as many people as possible, both day and evening canning classes are being offered but the class size is limited to 25. Advance registration is needed and each class costs $10 per person to cover the cost of materials.

The class will be taught by Tammy Roberts, nutrition and health education specialist with University of Missouri Extension with help from several MU Extension nutrition specialists.

“If you have never canned before but would like to start preserving your garden delights, this class is for you. If it has been a long time since you used your pressure canner or if you have recipes that were published before 1989, this class is for you,” said Roberts.

According to Roberts, the class will cover the basics of home food preservation and look at the equipment that is needed. The class will also have a hands-on portion so participants can move into the kitchen, roll up their sleeves and can green beans.

Participants will receive MU Extension guide sheets that include basic information for canning and include instructions for specific vegetables. Roberts will also discuss some basic principles for freezing food.

Advance registration is necessary and can be made by calling the MU Extension office in Greene County at (417) 862-9284 or by sending the attached information with a check to MU Extension, 833 Boonville, Springfield, Mo. Registration for the classes in Willard is needed by May 6, the registration deadline for the Springfield classes is May 20.

Thanks to our sponsors, the City of Willard, Second Baptist Church, and the Greene County Commission for making these class possible and affordable.
