The Sammakiah Young Women Center and other associations in the governorate launched the courses to teach people how to make and store things such as apple cider vinegar, grape vinegar, pomegranate, pickled items and other nonperishables, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

Agricultural expert, Iman Al-Batarseh Al-Burgan, said that the availability of these items at low prices, constitutes an opportunity for people to purchase and manufacture them at home in simple ways and save them as foodstuffs for use, especially in the winter season. 

Umm Mohammad said that she is keen to secure some foodstuffs that cannot be found during winter, such as olive oil, olives, pickled eggplant, adding that the training courses contributed to her knowledge of processing food at home and selling surplus through bazaars and exhibitions. 

For her part, Umm Hamza Al-Jaafrah said that she is keen to secure all the different foodstuffs her family needs such as olives, pickles, dairy products, and tomato paste.

She stressed that nonperishables have become a priority for many families due to their low costs, pointing out the importance of attending training courses specialized in foodstuffs.
