Canning Basics (outdoor/ in person) - Canceled

Since then, research has enabled home canners to simplify and safely preserve higher quality foods. Knowing why canning works and what causes food to spoil underscores the importance of following directions carefully.  Come join Melinda Hill from OSU Extension of Wayne County as she discusses the basic principles of water bath and pressure canning and when to use each method.
