Karla Case steps you through the seasons with cooking, baking, canning, and gifting. Soup It Up is one of four UW Extension classes she offers now through December.

“It’s always fun for people to get together and prepare food,” says UW Extension educator Karla Case. “And these are classes people ask for when the weather cools down.” All are hands-on and offered on a choice of dates.

Classes are taught at UW Extension, 2011 Fairgrounds Road in Casper. A materials fee covers the costs of food and supplies, and participants will take home the products of their efforts, she says. Class sizes are limited.

Pressure Canning for Beginners is Sat., Sept. 9 or Sat., Sept. 23 from 1-4 p.m. Participants take home their own jars of soup. Materials fee is $15.

Easy Bread Baking is Thurs., Sept. 28 or Thurs., Oct. 26 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Participants bake loaves of warm, delicious and healthy bread, says Case.
Materials fee is $10.
