Food Preservation Class in Mahaska County


A class on how to preserve food will be available for Mahaska County residents later this month.

Preserve the Taste of Summer 101 will be offered on July 25 from 6:00-7:30 pm. The class, offered at the Mahaska County Extension Office located at 212 N. I Street in Oskaloosa, is part of the ISU Extension and Outreach Preserve the Taste of Summer program.

ISU Extension and Outreach says the class will:

  • Discuss four food preservation techniques – pressure canning, hot water bath canning, dehydration, and freezing
  • Provide science-based, reliable, food preservation resources
  • Answer your general food preservation questions.

“This information-packed class is helpful for beginner home food preservers as well as for experienced home food preservers interested in staying up-to-date on the current recommendations. Past participants have shared that Preserve the Taste of Summer 101 was informative and fun and that it provided new information to keep them up to date and safe.” Cathy Drost, Human Sciences Speicalist at Iowa State University Extension and Outreach

The cost of this workshop is $10. The registration deadline is July 20 or until the class is full.
