Bryan County Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service held a Canning Salsa 101 4-HSummer Day Camp. A total of ten 4-Hers learned to can Salsa, seven boys and three girls. Youth learned to safety chop and dice fresh produce, how to measure ingredients, how to properly fill the canning jars, and how to hot water bath salsa.
“Youth were so excited to fill their own canning jar with homemade salsa and thrilled to remove their very own jar of processed salsa out of the hot water bath canner. Each youth prepared two half pints of salsa and were encouraged to save one jar of their salsa to enter in the Bryan County Free Fair,” said Tommie M. James, FCS & 4-H Extension Educator, Bryan County.
