Tuna Canning Workshop, Aug. 11 Tuna season is here, and it is time to make sure you and your equipment are ready to can up the harvest. The Master Food Preservers of Coos County, volunteers with the Oregon State University Extension Service, will hold a tuna canning workshop on Saturday, August 12. It will be held at the OSU Extension Office, 631 Alder St, in Myrtle Point. This hands-on workshop provides newbie canners with all the information they need on how to properly prepare and preserve the catch. Experienced canners will also benefit as they ensure they are up-to-date on the proper methods and times required. Participants are encouraged to bring their canners for a full inspection, particularly those using dial gauges as it is recommended those be checked each year. Space is limited, so call now to sign up – 541-572-5263, ext. 25292. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the cost is $15. Participants may wish to bring a sack lunch or snack. They will receive a jar of delicious canned tuna to take home.
