This workshop series is full, but another series is scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday, Nov. 13 to 15. See more here.


Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County will offer a three-day Master Food Preserver workshop to be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Oct. 30 to Nov. 1, at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 20 N. Phetteplace St., Falconer. Lunch will be provided.

This intensive training is designed to help participants master the process of home food preservation. Ample hands-on experience and live demonstrations are built into the course, and participants will also receive a comprehensive food preservation notebook. Prior experience is not required.

Using the safest, most updated information available, participants will learn the science of food preservation including food safety, gain hands-on experience with boiling water bath canning, pressure canning, jelled products, and quick pickling, plus observe demonstrations of freezing, drying, and fermentation. For those seeking to progress toward obtaining a Master Food Preserver certificate from Cornell Cooperative Extension, a post-test will be given the third day of the workshop.

The cost for this three-day workshop is $150.

Chautauqua County residents are eligible for a $75 scholarship provided by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. Space is limited to 20 participants, so register early.
