Each participant will take home a jar of canned food. Sessions are 6-9 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at the Park County Fairgrounds.

The schedule is:

Cauliflower, red and green pepper chunks, carrots, celery and zucchini with a variety of spices and vinegar will be combined to make a jar of homemade pickles to take home.
