Texas A&M AgriLife Hosting Food Preservation Seminar


Ripe, juicy tomatoes. Peaches so heavy they fall into the palm of your hand at the slightest touch. All the colors of summer squash. And who could forget the okra?!

With that summer garden coming in, its time to get ready to preserve the summer sun and its bounty with a few tips and tricks presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

The Food Preservation Basics Seminar on Monday, July 20th at 6:30 pm, held at the Angelina County office at 2201 S Medford Dr in Lufkin, is part of the monthly Homegrown to Homemade series. The evening will cover safe, research tested methods for both water-bath and pressure canning, drying, and freezing.

Refreshments and a chance to win door prizes provided.  Cost is $10 at the door.
