I don't know a whole lot of people in their 30s who are hardcore into canning. But I am and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Like most families, mine lives on a budget and we're very aware of how and where we spend our money. One way we've found to free up a little extra money is to do our own canning, taking advantage of the bounty of fresh produce that the spring and summer months give us. In my house, we're able to enjoy "fresh" fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes and corn through the winter months by setting aside time a couple of hours throughout the summer to can or to blanch and freeze.

If you're ready to learn how you can enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables through the winter months by canning in the warmer months, you won't want to miss "Canning with Ann."

Canning with Ann will be held at the Broome County Regional Farmers Market, 840 Front Street in Binghamton on Tuesday, September 12th at 6pm. You'll learn how to make tomato sauce and salsa. You'll also be taught the difference between pressure canning and hot water bath. You'll be given recipes and samples of the food you make during the class.

Admission rates apply and space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot today!
