081213 Food Preservation workshops in Laconia, Moultonborough (190)

LACONIA — Tomatoes have taken over flower gardens, beans are sprouting next to the bee balm and more lawns and backyards are now filled with vegetables.

Even small gardens can produce an overabundance of vegetables at the peak of their harvest season. Preserving the overflow can help you store high-quality food for later use.

Canning, freezing and drying are the main methods of preserving homegrown, or locally grown, food. The method(s) you choose depend on whether you can find safe preservation guidelines for the foods you want to preserve, whether you have the equipment and space needed to process and store your garden crops, how much it will cost, and whether you and your family like the preserved products.

Join UNH Cooperative Extension this summer at the home food preservation workshop August 13, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m, UNH Cooperative Extension, Belknap County Office 635 Main Street, Third Floor, Laconia,

The workshop will also be offered on August 22 at the Moultonborough Public Library, Moultonborough from 6-8 p.m.

Pre-registration is required for either event. Contact Betty Lou Canty at 603-447-3834 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Registration fee: $5 per person, pay at the door.
