Canning Demonstration with IFAS
February 21, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Florida’s early settlers were self-reliant and resilient. In order to survive, they often had to raise their own animals and grow their own crops to feed their families , as well as a source of income. How did pioneers eat long after harvest season? Pioneers practiced several types of food preservation to extend the life of the food they grew. One type of preservation is canning. Join the Collier County Museum at Government Center and the University of Florida IFAS extension to learn about canning techniques and how you can use those techniques in your own home.
