Pressure Canner Gauge Testing Clinic
October 1 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmfree, donations welcome
Clark County Master Food Preservers is hosting drive-through testing from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 26, Sept. 1, Sept. 19, and Oct. 10; and 3 to 6 p.m. Oct. 1 at WSU Clark County Extension Heritage Farm Parking Lot, 1919 N.E. 78th St., Vancouver. Your gauge will be tested while you remain in your car. This is a free service this year, however, cash or check donations are happily accepted.
In order to limit exposure, both the person doing the testing and the person or people in the car must wear masks. The gauge and all test equipment will be sanitized between cars. If you’re not feeling well, stay home and choose another day to come in for testing.
Bring your canning lid with dial gauge, rubber gasket/ring and safety plug. Note that pressure gauges on All American brand pressure canners must be taken off the lid prior to arrival for testing. The test unit cannot test these gauges while they are attached to the lid. All others may stay attached to the lid.
If you have any questions or concerns about food preservation or food safety, call the helpline, 564–397-5366 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
