A workshop was held for those interested in learning the basics of how to “put foods up” sponsored by the Litchfield Hills Farm-Fresh Market on September 23, at the First Congregational Church of Litchfield. The program followed the guidelines outlined in the US Department of Agriculture’s Complete Guide to Home Canning, which is the methodology approved by the CT Department of Consumer Protection. The workshop began with an overview of a variety ways to preserve food followed by a demonstration of canning two different products. This workshop was intended for people who are NEW to canning. The workshop was led by Margy and Craig Miner. View the pictures to see how much fun all the participants had!
