About Food Safety and Preservation
Extension has been involved with food preservation for 100 years. Our goal is to provide you with recipes and instructions that minimize your risk of spoilage and food borne illness. If you happen to be canning, freezing, dehydrating or pickling in the dead of night, you can access several of our bulletins and factsheets with tested instructions on line 24/7.
