Central Rivers Farmshed

We organize events, programs, workshops and resources that help support a local food economy.

Come join Master Food Preserver Sherry Daniels at Farmshed on Saturday, September 16 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm to learn how to safely can tomatoes.

Tomatoes are without a doubt the most widely home-canned product in the U.S. However, to avoid spoilage and the risk of food poisoning, home canning must be done properly. Tomatoes require a certain level of acid for safe home canning (pH of 4.6 or less–or the production of botulism toxin becomes an issue). The acid level of tomatoes varies due to several factors.

Participants will learn:

  • To select the perfect tomato
  • Safely can tomatoes
  • Process for sauce, juice, soups, and salsa
  • How to make and preserve salsa

Participants will take two pints of salsa home with them.

Find tickets at the link below, $25.00 for Farmshed members, $30.00 for non-members.  Registration ends September 13th.


See you there!
