Learn how to pressure can
Pressure canning is the only way to can meats, fish, poultry, game and vegetables. Working with a pressure canner can be intimidating, but is easy to master with a little instruction.
Improper use can result in disaster. Learn how a pressure canner works, how to find safe recipes and processing times, and practice using one safely at a food preservation workshop in September, taught by Glenda Hyde, OSU Extension instructor and Master Food Preserver.
Participants can sign up for a class that will be held on Sept. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or on Sept. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Both public workshops will give participants experience with canning meat and veggies. The special focus of the first pressure canning workshop will be convenience foods, making chili in the lab. At the Sept. 19 workshop, Bob Chandler, OSU Extension Master Food Preserver, will be demonstrating how to smoke and can fish. Directions for all recipes will be handed out to participants at both public workshops.
Participants with dial-gauge pressure canners can bring their canner lids to the workshop to be tested for accuracy. All dial gauges should be tested every year or when dropped or bumped. Free dial-gauge testing is available at all Central Oregon OSU Extension offices.
The cost of a workshop is $15 per person. Register by contacting the OSU Extension office in Redmond at glenda
.hyde@oregonstate.edu or at 541-548-6088 by Monday, Sept. 10. The class size is limited.

Make tamales
Learn to make tamales with Ahja King on Sept. 8 at the Redmond Public Library.
The class will be held at noon and is limited to 20 participants. Register at www.deschutes
library.org/calendar. For more information contact Liz at 541-312-1032 or lizg@deschutes
library.org.

Seeking artists and art vendors
Artist vendors and chalk artists are being sought for Redmond’s Passport to the Arts event that will be held downtown Sept. 29.
The event will consist of a ribbon cutting for Redmond’s newest sculpture, Thoughts of Flight. There will be live music, art vendors and food at Centennial Park. Redmond Commission for Art in Public Places will be selling “passports” that participants will take along with them on a walking tour of the downtown art sculptures. They will receive a stamp at each sculpture location and upon completion of their passport they  can return to Centennial Park  to receive a keepsake tile and enjoy music, artwork and food. There will be a kids art project during the day with the artwork being used in future projects.
Sidewalk squares will be sold to chalk artists for $25 for them to create and display their work.
For more information contact Jackie Abslag at 541-923-7763 or jaclyn

Wine stomp at Maragas
Maragas Winery will hold its third annual Grape Stomp on Saturday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Celebrating the beginning of the grape harvest, Central Oregonians will again be able to step into the wine vats and stomp their feet over this year’s first grape harvest.
Winemaker Doug Maragas said in a news release, “It’s a great event to bring your family to and experience the fun of turning grapes into juice with your tootsies.”
Central Oregonians must have great feet for the task because the efforts of 2010 resulted in a wine, Central Oregon Tootsie, earning a silver medal in the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Coincidently, wine made from last year’s stomp will be released at the event and will be coined “Beat Red.”
The winery rests on an organic farm just north of Terrebonne. In tune with their environmental efforts, the stomp will be a BYOG (bring your own glass) event. Logo glasses will be available for purchase.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Terrebonne Community School. Everyone will be treated to a scoop of Graeter’s ice cream, made with Oregon blackberries.
Tickets are $10 at the door or $8 in advance. Admission includes stomp activities and a wine tasting, including wine from last year’s stomp. Admission for kids with parents or guardians is encouraged and is free. This is a family-oriented event with plenty of space for kids to frolic and stomp grapes. Food will be available for purchase, and picnicking is also welcome, with the exception of beverages. Although there will be chairs and tables on the patio, bring low-rise lawn chairs and blankets for comfort on the lawn. Live bluegrass music will be presented by Back from the Dead.
Stomp contests and barrel raffle starts at 12:30 p.m. Details of the event can be found on the Maragas Winery website at www.maragaswinery.com or by calling the winery at 541-546-5464. The winery is located four and a half miles north of Terrebonne at 15523 S.W. Hwy. 97 in Culver. Open for tastings daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
