“Preserving the Bounty: Salsas and Relishes”

“Preserving the Bounty: Salsas and Relishes”

“Gardens overflowing with shiny, red tomatoes and bright green pepper…orchards filled with sweet, juicy peaches…farmers’ markets piled high with fresh produce…it is so easy to preserve.  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Family and Consumer Sciences in Fort Bend County will host “Preserving the Bounty: Salsas and Relishes”, a workshop event on Thursday, March 9 at the Extension office Annex located at 1402 Band Road in Rosenberg.  Food preservation techniques will include demonstrations of proper canning techniques.  The workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude by 12:00 p.m.  The cost of the workshop will be $20 and will include information on the techniques demonstrated.  Participants will take home a jar of salsa and a jar of relish. Home food preservation may not save you money – but, you will be able to enjoy the bounty throughout the year.  Seating for this event is limited.  Deadline for paid registration is March 3.  Instructor for the class will be Dianne Gertson, CEA-FCS Agent Fort Bend County.
