Learn how to can and preserve food at the Wenatchee River Institute

Learn how to safely preserve food at home by learning basics of both boiling water bath and pressure canning. The class will be taught by experienced canner and food preserver Julia Pinnix.

The class will be held outside at Pinnix’s house and an optional carpool will be provided to travel from the WRI. Masks are required for the class

Cost is $50 for members of the WRI or $60 for non-members. Workshop is limited to 10 participants. For more information or to register online, visit wenatcheeriverinstitute.org.
