They sure make great cocktail glasses, but the Mason jars in your cabinet had a very different – and much more important – use at the turn of the century!
Visit Howell Farm on this Saturday to learn canning: the ins, outs, and vacuum seals in between your summer produce and a delicious winter stew. Kim Daly, keeper of Howell Farm’s historic kitchen, will teach you how to “put up” your food – with tomato, bean, and okra canning demonstrations outside the farmhouse throughout the day.
**Please note that all 2021 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are required to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
