Master Food Preservers Share their Skills

Cornell Cooperative Extension Home Food Preserver Experts taught the art and science of preservation at SUNY Cobleskill last weekend, putting participants on the path to becoming Master Food Preservers themselves.

The 2016 Certified Master Food Preserver Workshop took place over three days from June 14 to 16. Participants learned the science of safe preservation, hands-on canning of tomatoes, fruit, hams, jellies, and pickles, and pressure canning of vegetables and meats. They also observed demonstrations of fermentation, freezing, and dehydration techniques.

The workshop ended with a 60-question exam that served as the first step to certification as a Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver.
