University of Illinois Extension will be testing pressure canner gauges for area residents this summer, free of cost.

The extension will be testing pressure canner gauges for area residents in each of the following manners:

•each Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market in Kewanee (where the old city hall building was located)

•by appointment by calling 853-1533

•by dropping off the lid with the gauge at the Extension office at Black Hawk East College campus Building 4 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The extension will call you back when it is finished.

You need to bring only the lid with the gauge, not the entire kettle.

If questions, call 853-1533.
