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.
