Dial gauge lid
Are you planning to do some canning this year to take advantage of your garden produce? Did you know that your canner gauge should be tested every year? The N.C. Cooperative Extension of Person County can help you get off to a safe canning start this season. Free canner gauge testing is available at the Person County office located at 304 S. Morgan St. in Roxboro. We have appointment slots available on Friday, May 27th at 8:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m. and Wednesday, June 8th at 1:30 p.m. -4:30 p.m.. You can call 336-599-1195 to set up an appointment or you can drop off your dial gauge lid, labeled with your name and number and we will contact you when we are done testing it.

Canning is easy and safe however: not the place for creativity. Only use scientifically tested recipes, instructions, and recommendations for home preserving foods. Make sure you follow safe guidelines for each food item you are canning. Freezing is a safe method to preserve food, so when in doubt, freeze it. Be safe! Test your pressure canner gauge before canning!
