The Cooperative Extension Service is offering free testing of pressure canner dial gauges on Wednesday, June 6 and 13, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Homer Farmers Market. Gauges can be tested on or off the lid of the canner.
It is important to have pressure canner dial gauges checked annually to help assure home canned food is safely processed. There will be free food preservation publications available. Pressure canners using weighted gauges do not need to be checked.
For more information contact the Cooperative Extension Service Office at 1-800-478-5824.
