For hunters or fishers looking to preserve their bounty or gardeners interested in canning vegetables for use throughout the winter, a Saturday, July 20, class in Tillamook has the answers.

“Home Canning Fish, Meat, Poultry and Vegetables,” hosted by the Tillamook OSU Extension Service, offers guidance on how to use a pressure canner properly and preserve foods without the risk of botulism. Students will try their hand at using a pressure canner during the class and take home a jar of home-canned tuna or meat.

The class will run from 10 am to 2 pm at 4506 Third Street. Cost is $15 if pre-registered by  Thursday, July 18, or $20 thereafter.
