What You'll Do
Though it's easy to open up a jar and enjoy sweet fruit preserves or salty, tangy pickles, few still know the art of canning their own food. With preservation expert Lyn Deardorff as your guide, you'll learn to keep your produce ready to eat year-round using the water-bath canning method. Lyn provides all the necessary supplies as she helps you can a tomato product, a fruit butter, and a pickled product. You'll head home with your newly preserved grub, as well as a notebook filled with recipes and refresher instructions for at-home use.

Owner and Creator, Preserving Now
At 9 years old, Lyn Deardorff would skim foam off her grandmother's crocks of sauerkraut, readying them for canning. Growing up, she delved deeper into the world of preserving, canning the produce from her first backyard garden. Now, she boasts more than 40 years of experience canning, along with the credentials to match: she earned a ServeSafe certificate to teach food preparation and has taken several advanced courses at UGA's food science school. Today, she leads workshops that help locavores throughout Atlanta enjoy their land's bounty year-round.
