Mustard and Summer Sausage Public Workshop

I just saw that Deschutes Brewery will be celebrating Sausagefest 3 during American Craft Brew Week (which happens to be the week before Central Oregon Beer Week) so… this seems to fit right in!

Interested in learning how to prepare and can your own mustard? Only a very few recipes are safe to can. Summer sausage also has food safety risks. Learn how to safely prepare and can mustard and prepare and store summer sausage at a “hands-on” workshop taught by Glenda Hyde, OSU Extension Family and Community Health Instructor. The class will be on Thursday, May 16, at the OSU Deschutes County Extension office at the Fairgrounds in Redmond, 9:00 AM to Noon. Cost of the workshop is $15.00. The registration fee includes products made in the lab and OSU publications and recipes. Class size is limited. The deadline for registration is May 14th. Call to register at the OSU Deschutes County Extension office at 548-6088 or email

Not all mustard recipes can be canned safely. OSU Extension recommends only using tested recipes for canning. Food preservation booklets with tested recipes can be purchased at your local county Extension office, or ordered or downloaded for free on-line at
