Baby food, pickling and more: DIY Saturday series to focus on healthy food preparation


The Comal County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office, located at 325 Resource Drive, New Braunfels, will start its 2019 DIY Saturday series with a lesson in making baby food Jan. 12.

“Every parent wants the best for their child, but sometimes the best can be expensive,” instructor Krystal Snider said. “Making your own baby food is a way to make sure your child is getting fresh, nutritious and delicious food while saving money, too.”

This year’s theme, “Path to the Plate,” will highlight the connection between food and health, focusing on growing, making and preparing nutritious food. The classes will take place on the second Saturday of the month from 9-11 a.m. The schedule is as follows:

  • Jan. 12: baby food
  • Feb. 9: meal prep
  • March 9: herb gardens
  • April 13: rainwater harvesting
  • May 11: extension office open house
  • June 8: backyard chickens/eggs 101
  • July 13: pickling
  • Aug. 10: lunch ideas
  • Sept. 14: backyard gardening
  • Oct. 12: kids day in the garden
  • Nov. 9: sausage making

The initial baby food class will cost $30 per person, and attendees must pay in advance at the extension office. The cost of DIY Saturday classes is typically $15 per person,

Attendees can register for the classes and get more information by calling 830-620-3440.
