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
