Our first canning bee was so popular that we decided to hold another one!
In the spirit of “using what you have” and leveraging community assets, please join Backyard Harvest in our SECOND canning bee. Backyard Harvest and local preservationist Jill Jacoby are teaming up to help you preserve your bounty and share the use of canning equipment for individuals new to canning. Participants will learn proper home-canning techniques, and each take home jars according to the amount they bring.
Bring your cool-season crops or what’s available at the farmer’s markets, and we provide the rest. Base fee covers kitchen rental, pantry items, equipment, and a certified Food Manager; 50 cents for each glass jar you use (or bring your own).
Fall Canning Ideas:
Pickling– beets, brussel sprouts, peppers, etc.
Green Tomato Mincemeat, pickles, relish
Apple Sauce, Apple Butter, Apple Pie Filling,
Picallili (zucchini, carrots, cauliflower)
Cranberry relish, cranberry jelly, etc.
