Canning Pressure Gauges to be Tested in Twisp

Jun 18, 2014

WSU Okanogan County Extension is offering  pressure canning gauge testing on Wednesday, June 25th at the Twisp Valley Grange, 344 W. 2nd Ave, Twisp from 10AM to 1PM. A trained WSU Food Safety & Preservation Information Assistant will be available to check your gauges and answer your food preservation questions

The USDA recommends that home canners have their pressure canner dial gauges checked each year to assure safety in home canning. An inaccurate gauge could mean home canned vegetables; fish and meat would not be safe to eat.

There is a suggested donation of $5 for each gauge tested.

Please call 509-422-7245 or email okanogan.county@wsu.edu for more information
