Demand for canning instruction has led the folks at Canning Connections to add monthly beginner sessions on the first Tuesday of each month in 2013.

These beginner sessions cover the basics of safe food preservation using the waterbath method of canning. The sessions are held at the Garden House (2336 15th Ave. S.) from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Cost is $15, payable the night of the class. The class is suitable for beginners or those wishing a refresher or update of safe canning practices.

All supplies and equipment are provided; just bring your apron and enthusiasm!

To register for the Feb 5th session (marmalade), email Diana at You can find Canning Connections online at their website or their Facebook page.
