Beginners Pressure & Water Bath Canning Workshop

Date/Time Location Course facilitator
3 Jun 2023 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM Barn Mead Farm Karen Boehm

Pressure Canning Workshop UKJoin fellow member and knowledgeable pressure Canner Karen, in a kitchen setting and learn the basics of both water bath canning, and the process of “Pressure Canning” – (which is not to be confused with pressure cooking that we have here in the UK).

Are you wondering whether to get into pressure canning but want to experience it before you buy your own equipment?  In this workshop you will be able to see and experience a pressure canner in action and see for yourself before you commit!

The Course will introduce how to safely use the equipment with a strong emphasis on food safety, and we’ll adhere to the standards set by the American department of agriculture (USDA).

The course shows the preparatory work, set up of the canner plus storage of canned goods.  We will can examples from start to finish!  You will get a handout with the most important pieces of information and you will be able to ask a lot of questions.

This is an ideal workshop for those who want to learn how to preserve their produce without the need to refrigerate, or freeze. The techniques you learn will give you shelf stable foods for a minimum of one year, without the need to use expensive electricity. Pressure canning is little used in the UK, but this process does enable you to preserve and store your precious produce for a minimum of one year in a pantry or cupboard environment. We will be using the “All American” pressure canner.

The course includes a light lunch and teas/coffees and biscuits.
