Home food preservation demonstration live stream: July 22, 1pm EDT

In my quest to become an even bigger canning nerd (in a good way), I’m joining forces with North Carolina Cooperative Extension agent Brenda Sutton (aka The Produce Lady) and broadcasting a live home food preservation demonstration. We’re all set to go at 1pm EDT on Friday July 22.

There will be tomato peeling; acidification using lemon juice; boiling water bathing and pressure canning.

And I’m guaranteed to have at least five goofy moments.

Tune in via the interwebs at www.ustream.tv.channel/the-produce-lady or access the live feed from The Produce Lady Facebook page. Viewers will be able to ask questions through an online chat box or you can tweet me at @benjaminchapman.
