Preserving our Heritage/ Preserving our Health"   Attached are photos of peach jam I made 2 weeks ago and it is all thanks to Debbie's wonderful instruction!  Amy Gery

Covering in detail equipment and procedure.  Miss Deb has created these classes to give everyone planning to attent the June through Aug Canning Workshops a more rounded knowledge of the Canning. Classes to be held in farmhouse to accommodate weather.



Paula Tepedino-Coopersburg Resident writes about our summer canning workshop -  Overall the workshop was a 10 for me, which means it was the highest benefit!  The space was great, the preparation area was organized and clean and set up very well for what was needed.  Instruction was clear and thorough, with lots of repetition of important steps to keep us reminded.  Having handson time to try most of the steps was very helpful.  Allowing for questions to be asked was also very helpful.  The group was very nice and had info to share.  It was my first canning experience. My first at Flint Hill Farm, too.    8-27-2013
