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. No prior experience in food preservation is required. 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.
