Learn how to pressure can foods this Saturday at St. Andrew's United Church.

Putting food away for winter eating is a re-emerging trend, and although fruit can be canned using the water-bath method, vegetables, prepared sauces, fish or meat requires pressure canning because due to low acidity.

Now you can learn how to pressure can safely at Mission’s Kitchens hands-on workshop Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Andrew’s United Church, 7756 Grand St.

The workshop emphasizes safe, and up-to-date pressure canning practices and includes all supplies and equipment. Participants will gain confidence in pressure canning and take home delicious canned tomatoes for use in soups and pasta sauces.

The workshop is $45 and must be prepaid. Registration for all workshops is through the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley at 604-820-8455 or admin@wrsfv.ca. For more information, visit www.wrsfv.ca.
