Dept H & P - Canned Foods



Home Canning! 
Yesterday and Today!

Nicolas Appert began experimenting with canning in the late 1700's as a means of perserving food.  Over the years, there have been many upgrades to refining the techniques of home canning.  Today, there is a renewed interest in home canning and what better way to show off your expertise by entering your labor of love into the county fair for all of our fairgoers to see.

 Anyone, no matter what age, in Warren County as well as the surrounding counties can still show off their best work of the year. What’s even better now is that you can win money ($) for winning prizes of 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in all categories!
