Special to The Union

A citrus preservation class will be offered to the community in Nevada County on Thursday, Jan. 23 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Grass Valley Veterans Building, 255 South Auburn in Grass Valley.

Join UC Master Food Preservers as they step through canning, dehydrating and freezing as methods of preserving citrus to use throughout the year in your family’s meals. Learn how to make citrus-based marmalade and jelly, and how to can citrus sections. See how you can use almost all parts of citrus by making candied citrus peel, preserved peels, citrus salt, powdered citrus peel and edible potpourri. Get tips and tricks to make your frozen citrus maintain top quality in the freezer. Throughout the class you’ll receive suggestions on how to incorporate preserved citrus in meals. You’ll leave with lots of recipes and ideas to try on your own at home.

The class is $15. Pre-registration is required at Contact Robin Cleve- land at or 530-621-5528 for more information.
