This summer, Florida Organic Growers will be hosting a series of free canning and vacuum sealing demonstrations to help the Gainesville community learn how to preserve food, create recipes and use fresh local produce to enjoy and share with friends all year long. Come out to the 441 Alachua County Farmers Market on Saturday, August 16th to learn how to make and can pear butter and jelly! The demo will be led by the talented Stefanie Samara Hamblen of Hogtown Homegrown. Register for a demonstration and you will be automatically entered for your chance to win a basket filled with food preserving goodies including homemade canned goods, a Ball® Canning Discovery™ Kit, Canning and Vacuum Sealing Guides, Ball® and FoodSaver® coupons and other exciting items.
