Individuals who participate in home canning should check the accuracy of their dial type gauges and other lid parts as part of their annual routine.
To have the dial gauge on your pressure canner tested FREE OF CHARGE, bring the lid to the Extension office, Juab County Courthouse (northeast entrance), 160 North Main, Nephi, on Monday, July 21. Times are 8 am to 12 noon, and 1 to 5 pm. If you cannot make it that day, call for an appointment at 623-3450 to have it tested on another day for $1.00. Please allow 1 hour for testing.
The Extension office has one Victorio food strainer, two Presto pressure canners (16-quart & 23-quart), two 21-quart water bath canners, and one Gardenmaster food dehydrator available for Juab County residents to use in home food preservation (a three day checkout).
