My wife attended this seminar and said it was pretty good. The person conducting it said she might do an actual live canning class instead of just the information class that this one was. I've contacted her to see if she'd like some assistance in giving that class and that I could bring equipment and help out in teaching.

The county cooperative extension offices sometimes have home preservation/canning classes, too. I had it bookmarked, but now I can't find it.

Those offices also test the dial gauges on pressure canners for people. The dial gauges are supposed to be tested every year or so, and when they're new. The dial gauges can be several pounds off, even new out of the box.
I\'m armed, proud to be a member of pa2a.org since Dec 2012.
