Riverton Town Days

The City of Fun Carnival is coming to Riverton City Park again this July 4th holiday. On Wednesday from 6-11 pm it is 2 tickets for $1 and 1 ticket per ride. This is a great deal! We usually go right when they open and the place is DEAD. Not a line in sight! All other days it's $1.50 per ticket and multiple tickets per ride. It's a lot of fun for my little ones (aged 9-3). Hope to see you there.

Pressure Canning and Pressure Cooking

Thank you Nancy Smith and Shelli Smith for the great class on pressure cooking and pressure canning. We loved it and learned so much! Just a little info from the class. You can pressure cook anything that can be boiled, steamed or braised. Nancy cooked frozen chicken in 10 min. She made a enchilada casserole in less then 20 min!!! It was wonderful! Then, Shelli showed us pressure canning. She took her thawed but not cooked chicken breast, cut it up and smashed it into the jar. No water added, put the seal on the jar and pressure canned it. Amazing!! So much cheaper then buying canned meat. Plus she showed us some bbq pork that she has done that her family gobbles up! Thanks ladies for all of the great info! Some resources are www.extension.usu.edu and www.freshpreserving.com

Thursday night at 7:00 at Nancy's house we are learning how to pressure cook. She'll teach us how to cook frozen chicken in 10 minutes and a roast in 30! Simple and delicious. Shelli will be teaching us about canning. Come and learn how to preserve the bounty you're growing in your square foot garden!
