Canner dial gauge testing
As the food preservation season approaches, those who use pressure canner dial gauges are reminded that gauges should be checked each year to ensure accuracy for food safety.
Katie Schlagheck, an Ohio State University family and consumer sciences educator, is conducting four special pressure canner testing dates.
Testing will be available April 14 and May 24 from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at the Sandusky County OSU Extension office, 2000 Countryside Dr., Fremont; and April 15 and June 1 from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at the Ottawa County OSU Extension office, 240 W Lake St., Oak Harbor.
The cost is $5 per gauge tested. The process will take about 10 minutes. Participants need to bring the dial gauge and may bring the entire canner if desired.
Those who cannot make any of the dates may call 419-898-3631 in Ottawa County or 419-334-6340 in Sandusky County or drop off at gauges either location during business hours for testing.
