What to expect in the world of canning at Minnetrista!

IT’S MAY! Can you believe it?! I think I get shocked by May every year. I mean, it seems like winter lasts forever but then, BOOM! It’s spring! Well, May means time for planting gardens for canning. It also means canning programming at Minnetrista is right around the corner! A few months back, I ran a few possibilities for canning workshop recipes by you. Now I’d like to tell you what I have planned so you all can mark your calendars!

Peach Rum Sauce—June 16 from 5:30–7:30 p.m.


Green Tomato Salsa Verde—July 21 from 5:30–7:30 p.m.


Chicken No-Noodle Soup—August 18 from 5:30–7:30 p.m.


Beef Stew Meat—September 15 from 5:30–7:30 p.m.


Cranberry Sauce—November 17 from 5:30–7:30 p.m.



We also have a Canning Experience Booth at Farmers Market at Minnetrista. This booth will be out there every Saturday, starting June 6, through the end of September. This is a great opportunity to ask questions, see canning in action, taste a sample, enter a raffle, or see what we have as a giveaway!

I look forward to seeing you all this summer! As always, Happy Canning!
