Water Bath Canning: Tomatoes, Salsa and Such is a 4-hour hands-on workshop that addresses water bath canning with a specific emphasis on the proper way to home can tomatoes, salsa, tomato juice, and other tomato products in a water bath canner.

The workshop will begin with a basic discussion of home canning and the safety considerations involved with this method of food preservation. We will talk about the kinds of equipment needed for water bath canning* and how to operate a water bath canner properly. Participants will have the chance to practice hands-on techniques when they get into the Extension demo-kitchen to can tomatoes and prepare salsa. Participants will receive guidelines for acidifying all varieties of tomatoes safely and will go home with lots of canning recipes for tasty tomato treats!

Dates:
Two sessions of Water Bath Canning: Tomatoes, Salsa and Such will be offered. Each session is the same so you need only sign up for one date:

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Times: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

All sessions will be held at the NC Cooperative Extension – Union County Agricultural Center, 3230 Presson Road, Monroe, NC 28112

Cost of Water Bath Canning: Tomatoes, Salsa and Such: $20.00 each


* Please note: Tomatoes may be canned in a pressure canner, too, but this workshop does not address pressure canning. For more information about how to use a pressure canner, please see the description for the Basics of Home Canning workshop. Those who prefer using a pressure canner for canning tomatoes might still like to take this workshop, however, as it provides an update on current guidelines for preparing, acidifying, packing and processing tomatoes to keep products safe. Those guidelines would be the same whether you used a water bath or a pressure canner.

4-H, FFA, Shelton Leadership Travel Program Virgen de los Angeles Sat Aug 2 (All Day Event) — 5 days away

According to Wickipedia
"Virgen de los Angeles Day is a Costa Rican holiday celebrating Costa Rica's patron saint, the Virgen de los Angeles, also known as La Negrita.

According to tradition, La Negrita, the Black Virgin, is a small (less than a meter tall), probably indigenous, representation of the Virgin Mary found on this spot on August 2, 1635 by a native woman. As the story goes, when she tried to take the statuette with her, it miraculously reappeared twice back where she'd found it. The townspeople then built a shrine around her.

In 1824, the Virgin was declared Costa Rica's patron saint. La Negrita now resides on a gold, jewel-studded platform at the main altar in the Nuestra Señora de los Angeles Basilica in Cartago. Each August 2, on the anniversary of the statuette's miraculous discovery, pilgrims from every corner of the country (and beyond) walk the 22km from San José to the basilica. Many of the penitent complete the last few hundred meters of the pilgrimage on their knees. This basilica is equally visited by tourists and locals."

Parenting Matters - Because kids don't come with a manual
NEW SESSIONS at Franklin County Cooperative Extension- FREE!

Below please find information regarding our upcoming Parenting Matters classes. This is a great opportunity for people who are parents, will become parents, who have custody of or an interest in children, to better understand effective communication, the difference between discipline and punishment, and more.

Also, recognizing our 5 County Mental Health partners are no longer able to provide Anger Management classes with us, please note these parenting classes do have a component of conflict resolution, problem solving and anger management within. This is not a substitute for anger management classes but a reminder that if you know of folks who are parents with anger management issues, this parenting class may benefit them.

Thanks in advance for sharing this information!

All the best,
Rachel
