TOPIC:  Preserving your Harvest  Now that the summer harvest is in full swing join us for our August 21st General Meeting and learn about some of the methods that will enable you to enjoy your bounty throughout the growing season and into the winter months.  In addition to the tried-and-true canning methods, we will also be discussing other techniques such as dehydration, vacuum sealing, freezing and steam juicing. During the presentation there will be lots of opportunity for open discussion so that you can ask questions and troubleshoot any difficulties that you’ve had in the past when preserving your harvest.

SPEAKER:  Karen Hollingshead, past president of BDHS  says” Leaving a zucchini on your neighbour’s doorstep, ringing the bell and running away is not the only way to deal with the wonderful problem of having too much success in your vegetable garden. By the end of the evening you will be looking forward to filling your freezers, fruit cellars and pantry shelves with delicious and healthy fruit, vegetables and herbs from your gardens and farmers’ markets. You’ll sleep well knowing that you are now prepared to dine in style during a power outage or zombie apocalypse.”
