Youth Learn How to Can Strawberry Jam
August 25, 2016
On Monday, August 8, the University of Illinois Extension of Macoupin County held a 4-H Strawberry Jam Canning Workshop for local youth. U of I Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator, Lisa Peterson, taught youth how to make strawberry jam using pectin and how to safely preserve it through water bath canning. Each participant took home a jar of homemade strawberry jam and received additional canning recipes.
