LIBERTY, NY (September 8, 2014) — Are you overwhelming in fresh veggies? Are your tomatoes begging to be preserved? Too many beans, peas, carrots?
Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) will hold this introductory class on the fundamentals of canning in its new Entrepreneurial & Teaching (EaT) Kitchen.
The Eat Kitchen is located at the CCESC Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
