I’m pleased to announce that we have planned 7 CCE Master Food Preserver workshops around the state.

These 3 day workshops are designed to be a train-the-trainer program for CCE educators or volunteers who would like to be able to offer food preservation classes in their county, or even just answer questions about home food preservation with confidence. The workshops are also open to the general public who want to enhance their food preservation skills, so feel free to pass this information on to others in your county.

The Master Food Preserver program includes the scientific basis of home food preservation; hands-on experience in boiling water and pressure canning, making jams and jellies, plus pickling; demonstrations in fermentation, freezing and drying; and a discussion of other methods of preservation. Certificates of participation are distributed to those who complete the course, the first step toward becoming a certified CCE Master Food Preserver. For more details regarding the workshop content, contact me.

If you’re interested in any of the workshops below, contact the coordinator listed for more specific information, including the cost.
