WHAT:      Preserving the Harvest

WHEN:      Saturday August 16, 2014 - 10:00 AM to 12:01:PM

Is your garden overflowing? Would you like to savor the flavor of summer in winter? Master Gardener Nancy Grove will teach you a number of ways to preserve your harvest: water bath and pressure canning, drying, freezing, and cold storage. Nancy is a founding member of the Master Gardeners of San Francisco & San Mateo Counties. She was fortunate to learn canning techniques from her mother. Much of the "Grove Farm" apples sauce comes from a tree that has provided apples for her family for five decades.  Nancy and her husband grow essentially all the produce that they consume, and her passion for canning and drying yields many holiday presents and hostess gifts throughout the year.
