Want to learn how you can enjoy tomatoes, squash, peaches and more seasonal favorites year-round? The answer, of course, is canning.
Connie Sheppard of the Texas Agrilife Extension and Marilyn Magaro of the Texas Department of Agriculture are teaming up for a class set for 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the Pearl Farmers Market, 200 E. Grayson St.
Their demonstration is one of three on canning planned for the summer. The remaining two will be at 9:30 a.m. July 16 and Aug. 13.
By controlling what goes into the canning jar, you know exactly what it is that you are eating, a release from the market says.
A “Beginner’s Guide to Canning & Recipe Booklet” will also be available at the Pearl information table.
