More people are gardening this summer as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nothing is more delicious than canned green beans, soups, and meat mixtures in the cold winter months that have been home preserved in the summer using the bounty of home gardens.

It is recommended that all dial gauge pressure canners be tested for accuracy each year before you begin home canning.

N.C. Cooperative Extension, Cabarrus County Center will again be testing dial gauge canners and providing research-based information on all aspects of home canning.

However, it will be offered in a different manner this summer following social distancing and safety guidelines. Interested residents are invited to call the office, 704-920-3310, weekdays to set up an appointment. Residents may also email pamela_outen@ncsu.edu weekdays to request an appointment. Testing will begin on Monday, June 8, 2020, at the Cabarrus Extension Office, 715 Cabarrus Avenue West, Concord, NC 28027.

At the time of your scheduled appointment, bring your dial gauge pressure canner to 715 Cabarrus Avenue West. Phone us at 704-920-3310 when you arrive and are parked in front of the office. FCS Agent Pam Outen will walk out into the parking lot of the office. Your canner lid will be wiped with a disinfecting wipe and visually examined, and a packet of canning information will be handed to you. The canner will be tested in the building and returned to the parking area with a written copy of the results.

Testing will be by advance appointment only and will be offered Monday-Friday.

Testing your dial gauge pressure canner will ensure safe and delicious food to enjoy.
