Canning Jars

On September 11 at Hildene, Jane and Ken Moriarty, who have been doing their own canning for years, will lead participants in making a simple tomato sauce in a “how-to-begin home pressure canning workshop.” Starting with how to prepare vegetables through to the finished Mason jar, participants will learn about supplies and techniques that make canning fun and easy. Beyond the two-hour basics class there will be a jar-cooling waiting period for any who wish to stay for a “do-it-yourself” guided round two. All participants will go home with a jar of tomato sauce. The workshop from 1:00 to 3:00 is limited to 15 participants. $15 for Hildene Members. $20 for non-members. To register call Stephanie at 802.367.7960 or email
