Free food preservation workshop offered

'Putting Food By' workshop sponsored by Interlakes Cattlebelles

By Ginny-Lou Alexander

Have you ever wondered what to do with an abundance of fruit and vegetables?

Come to the free “Putting Food By” workshop sponsored by Interlakes Cattlebelles to find out how to deal with that abundance on Sept. 17.

The Cattlebelles are a local women’s agricultural organization dedicated to education and promotion of healthy living. They encourage the use of fresh produce as it comes into season.

The workshop will teach folks how to preserve foods by canning, drying, pickling and freezing.

All produce, equipment and information will be supplied by the Cattlebelles.

Come and experience the joys and rewards of “putting food by” and take home the “fruits of your labour.”

Please reserve your spot for Sept. 17, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Valley Room kitchen (behind the Red Coach Inn) in 100 Mile House by phoning Lorraine Jerema at 250-593-2384. (Please register by Sept. 8.)
