Village of Mount Gilead, Ohio

Attention Mount Gilead residents! See info below 👇

A few helpful tips for spring cleanup:

No tires

No paint/chemicals

All metal and appliances will not be picked up by the village. Local scrappers who are not contracted with the village often will stop for those items. Try to separate your pile so both the village crew and the scrappers can easily move from residence to residence efficiently.

The village yard waste facility (behind the fairgrounds) will be temporarily closed this week to process the large pile of yard waste. We apologize for any inconvenience during this interruption of service.

Thank you for your understanding of these conditions and for your commitment to keeping our village beautiful!

OSUE Pressure Canner Appointment

Another good way to reduce waste in your home is to can your own food. Does your pressure canner need to be tested? Schedule an appointment with OSU Extension today to keep your family safe!
Contact: Candace Heer
419-947-1070
[email protected]

Mt. Gilead, Ohio -- It’s just about time to fetch canners out of the basement or garage. Fresh summer produce is on its way. When was the last time your dial gauge pressure canner was tested for accuracy? If it’s been more than one year, it’s time for a re-check. OSU Extension will be testing dial gauge pressure canners on June 12 and June 17 at OSUE-Morrow County office (Ag Credit Building). Register for an appointment at the link below.

Home canning is a relatively simple process, but many variables can affect your finished product. There are so many resources with unsafe information that it is important to make sure you are following the most recent safe home canning guidelines. One guideline for home canning foods safely is using a pressure canner to process low-acid foods, such as vegetables, meat, poultry, and fish. These low-acid foods must be pressure canned at the recommended time and temperature to destroy Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium that causes botulism food poisoning. Home canning low-acid foods in boiling water canners is absolutely unsafe because 212 degrees F is not high enough to destroy botulinum bacteria.

With good reason, most people have a healthy regard for the possible dangers of pressure canners. Usually this respect is based on an old story of a pressure canner “blowing up” in someone’s grandmother’s kitchen. Regardless, it is important to realize that pressure canners are safe if the safety precautions are followed and the canner is used properly. Dangers arise when the unit isn’t maintained and/or used properly. To make sure your pressure canner is working properly, all dial-gauge pressure canners should be tested for accuracy each year.

OSU Extension, Morrow County will be testing dial gauge pressure canners on June 12 from 9 AM to 12:30 PM at OSUE-Morrow County office or on June 17 from 3-6 PM at OSUE-Morrow County office by appointment only. There are additional pressure canner testing events happening across the state. You can register for an appointment at https://go.osu.edu/2020pressurecannertesting or by calling 419-947-1070. Appointments are 15-minutes, so please arrive on time. You only need to bring the pressure canner lid to be tested.

Remember, home food preservation can be safe, simple and easy to learn!
