Old-fashioned preservation methods are the latest rage


Old-fashioned food preservation has become a hot topic in recent years and for good reasons. People want to know what ingredients are going into their food and they are insisting on better quality and more nutritious products.
The Texas AgriLife Extension office is providing a way to revisit the food preservation methods our mothers and grandmothers used when they harvested the bounty from their gardens. Preserving food and canning is not only about saving money. It’s about connecting with friends and family in doing something that satisfying, useful, creative and nutritious.
Angela Fiedler Kerr County Extension Agent and Master Preserver Stacy Whittemore will teach how to make canned gifts from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 3, at the Kerr County Extension Office located at 3775 Hwy 27. You will learn how to make jams from wine and gifts in a jar for your holiday celebrations! Wear comfortable clothing and consider bringing an apron. It can get messy!
This workshop is open to all people, regardless of socioeconomic level, race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
Class size is limited and pre-registration is required by Oct. 30. To register call the Texas AgriLife Extension office at 830-257-6568. Cost of the workshop is $20, and will cover the workshop, handouts and supplies. Each participant will leave with a jar of fresh homemade wine jam, which they canned themselves. If you need special accommodations to participate in this workshop please let us know 10 business days prior to the class.
