Become a Master Food Preserver! This three-day training program includes the scientific basis of home food preservation. You will get hands-on experience in boiling water bath and pressure canning, making jams and jellies, pickling and fermentation. There will be demonstrations in freezing and drying and discussion of other methods of preservation.
Upon successful attendance of all 3 days of the workshop and the passing of the 60 question exam, you will have completed the first step toward becoming a Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver. All class materials will be provided, including a nearly 300 page handbook. Lunch each day is also included. Space is limited!
Registration is through Hudson Valley Community College, but since it is part of the summer session, registration does not start until May 2. It can be done on-line, over the phone, by mail or in-person.
