Canning expert to present seminars at Chehalis Outfitters Saturday


Local canning enthusiasts — or those who want to learn the skill — can hear from an expert at a pair of seminars set for Chehalis Outfitters on Saturday, June 1.

David Schary of Two Lumps of Sugar will present the seminars at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the business, located at 1757 N. National Ave., Chehalis.

“David brings a wealth of knowledge on safe methods for pressure canning, hot water canning, fermentation, growing your own sprouts, food preservation and more,” Chehalis Outfitters stated.

The cost is $25 per person. For that fee, attendees will also receive a swag bag with a value of $75, a recipe book and free gauge testing. Participants will learn how to safely use pressure canners.

“Would you like to learn a skill, have control over the food you eat, save thousands of dollars on food costs, and have fun while you’re at it?” Chehalis Outfitters asked in an announcement. “Join Chehalis Outfitters and Two Lumps of Sugar for a canning seminar for the beginner and the most experienced canners.”

Participants can enter to win an All American Canner.

To sign up, stop by Chehalis Outfitters. Tickets are limited.
