St. Lawrence County has a Master Food Preserver volunteer group.
Our Harvest Kitchen Preservation Series teaches participants in depth about preserving North Country bounty- such as berries, fruits or meats- preserved in a variety of ways. The primary ingredients are farm fresh. The remainder of ingredients are donated from Nature's Storehouse in Canton who has generously agreed to support the series.
Fun with Fermentation: Winter Veggies on February 20th
Volunteers and Extension educators teach workshops about many types of preservation such as water bath canning, pressure canning, fermentation, dehydration and freezing. All workshops contain information about the scientific basis of food preservation as well as hands-on opportunities to learn each method.
We often host classes at the Extension Learning Farm since our commercial kitchen is a great teaching site. Our volunteers are also willing to teach classes off site throughout the county. Get in touch if you are interested in hosting us for a class at your site (school, library, church, non-profit, etc.)
