A peachy day at the canning workshop

A canning workshop held Aug. 8, at the Lions Hall in Barriere, and sponsored by Yellowhead Community Services and the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets, was all that it could be and more. Facilitators Adrienne Pullen and Angela Semrick worked with a full class as they took them through the whole process of canning fresh peaches so the fruit can be enjoyed all year round.

Here, Angela Semrick (center) is showing the process of slicing the peaches and removing the pits while two of the participants look on before doing it themselves.

If you are interested in participating in future canning workshops please call Yellowhead Community Services at 250-672-9773 to register.

Upcoming workshops will be; Pickles on Aug. 29; Tomatoes on Sept. 5; Savory Tomatoes on Sept. 19, Dehydrated Apples on Oct. 3; and Pickled Beets on Oct 17. All workshops run from noon to 3 p.m., and there is a registration fee of $15.
