We’re very excited to say that Susy Hymas, Master Food Preserver, will be teaching a class on the Basics of Canning this coming Saturday, September 7th.
Formerly the coordinator of Whatcom County’s Master Food Preserver program, Susy owns her own business, ‘Daylight Harvest Foods‘. She teaches classes on food preservation, locally and in surrounding counties, as well as nutritional classes at Bellingham Technical College. Susy says that she enjoys meeting people who are excited to learn and being able to share what she knows about food.
We asked Susy what got her started canning. She says in part, it’s her food culture. She grew up eating her grandmother’s canned goods, and later on, inherited her canning equipment.
“I’m just a foodie who likes to preserve the harvest” Susy told us. She sees canning and preserving as a way to eat more locally. And wouldn’t we all like to do that?
If you want to join in on the fun this Saturday, call our store to register: 360-676-5480. Class fee is $5.
