As the warm-weather gardening season approaches, you can get prepared in many ways — starting seeds, preparing soil and mulch and much more.
Here’s another way to get ready as well. In a one-day seminar, you can learn to stock up on custom flavors and keep the freshness from your garden in your pantry all year.
The seminar will review canning basics and food preparation techniques. Di-Anna Arias, director of culinary vision for Don Strange of Texas and chef Susan Johnson will also share details, techniques and recipes behind the special lunch menu.
The Don Strange Ranch is at 103 Waring Welfare Road in Boerne. Registration for the event begins at 8:30 a.m. The course is part of a series, “Backyard Basics,” being offered by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service that focuses on self-reliance through home-based food production, preparation and preservation. The cost of the course is $55 and registration is available online here.
All funds go to education programming for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
