We are approaching spring, which means April showers, May flowers, and more FCS programming here at our Cooperative Extension office!

In May, we will be holding an Instant Pot® series. This includes the popular Instant Pot® 101 course and a new advanced Instant Pot® 201 course. Participants in Instant Pot® 101 will be able to learn the ins and outs of using an Instant Pot® and other electronic pressure cookers, while learning how to make new, healthy and delicious meals. Participants in Instant Pot® 201, who have experience with using the popular appliance, will be able to learn more advanced recipes with the Instant Pot®.

In June, we will be holding our first Food Preservation Series. This includes three workshops involving methods of preserving and fermenting foods such as jams, jellies, pickles, and yoghurt. We will also be holding our Safe Plate for Food Managers Course. Safe Plates for Food Managers is a course to educate supervisors in food service on best practices in Food Safety through case studies and hands-on activities. Participants who complete the course will have the opportunity to sit for an examination for Food Protection Manager certification, required by at least one manager in a food service establishment in the State of North Carolina. If you are interested in more information about these programs coming in the spring and summer, be sure to contact our extension office at (704) 283-3830! Hope to see you in the warm weather!
