ADEL — Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Specialist Mary Krisco, RN, will be on hand during the Dallas County Fair on Friday, July 15 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. to test canner lids for gauge accuracy and seal tightness.

“As people begin to see the fruits of their labor, ISU Extension wants to make sure our citizen’s homegrown harvest isn’t later unsafe to eat because of faulty canner lids,” said Krisco.

She will also be answering food preservation questions plus supplying guests with her favorite canning publications and recipes from ISU Extension.

This special event is come-and-go and testing will be offered at no cost.
