Preserving and Preparing Local Food

Friday, August 11, 10:15am – 11:45am

4C Camp, 2420 Arbor Hill Rd, Delhi

When your garden overflows with fresh produce and the farmers’ market explodes into rows of brilliantly colored fruits and vegetables, it’s time to join in the flavorful tradition of preserving good food. This food preservation class will cover preserving and preparing garden produce using a water bath canner. Participants will make and preserve a jar of corn and veggie relish to take home as part of the class.

To register for Preserving and Preparing Zucchini and Squash from A to Z, send $10.00 to Cornell Cooperative Extension, 34570 State Highway 10, Suite 2, Hamden, NY 13782 or call 607-865-6531 to pay by credit card.  Registration for the class may need to be limited due to size of teaching facility.

Black Leg Tick

TICK ALERT

The time for greatest concern is late spring and early summer when ticks are in their nymph stage. So if you’re out enjoying nature, it’s important to take steps to protect yourself.

  • Avoid walking through high grass and bushy areas. If you’re hiking, stay on trails.
  • Use insect repellent labeled for ticks (not appropriate for infants; follow instructions for use on children).
  • Wear light-colored clothing, and – to minimize skin exposure – long pants (with pants tucked into your socks) and long-sleeved shirts.
  • After outdoor activity, check yourself for ticks, paying close attention to the back of the knees, behind the ears, scalp, arm pits, and back. Check children and pets, too.

For more information contact CCE at (607) 865-6531.
