High Noon at Miner Library Presents: Preserving Nature’s Bounty – Join us Wed., May 27 at Noon

Do you love shopping at a local farmers’ markets, but then don’t know what to do with all that beautiful food?  Have you joined a CSA or food co-op, but receive more food than your family can eat in a week?  We have a solution for you!

Join our own Helene McMurray (Head, Bioinformatics Consulting and Education Service) for a discussion of the basics of home food preservation, including canning, freezing, drying, and pickling fresh foods to extend their shelf life or convert them into something new and delicious.  The session will include some tips on safely preserving food — especially what not to do.  We will also have examples of the kinds of equipment that are used for this hobby, such as canning equipment, vacuum sealing gear and a food dehydrator. We will also highlight books, magazines, and websites with useful information on preserving.  And, for a special treat, we will include a few samples from Helene’s own kitchen!

Join us at noon on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, in the History of Medicine room at Miner Library. Feel free to invite your colleagues and bring your lunch.

For more information, contact Linda Hasman at 275-3399.
