Rising food costs have persuaded many people to plant gardens. You may be thinking about preserving your harvest for the first time—or dusting off old canning equipment. Food preservation has evolved over the years. With the knowledge of what foodborne illnesses can occur, it is important to use proper procedures and tested recipes to prepare safe preserved foods.

For cost and availability of the following classes and programs within Wyoming, contact the University of Wyoming Extension Educator nearest you.
