Food Safety and Preservation in Central Oregon
Oregon State University Extension promotes food safety and preservation methods through publications, workshops, free pressure canner dial gauge testing, questions answered in-person, online or by phone, and the OSU Extension Food Preservation page.
A comprehensive online course, Preserve @ Home is offered with the University of Idaho Extension on eXtension.org in January and February and features a one-day hands-on lab at the conclusion of the course.
Trained volunteers assist OSU Extension professionals serving the public. Master Food Preserver volunteers receive comprehensive training to be able to help provide information, teach or assist with workshops and answer questions. You can find out how to apply for Master Food Preserver training on this web page.
