Food Preservation Workshops

St. Lawrence County has a Master Food Preserver volunteer group.

Our 2018 Preservation workshop series will teach participants in depth about a single North Country ingredient- such as berries, tomatoes or venison- preserved in a variety of ways. The primary ingredients will be farm fresh. The remainder of ingredients will be donated from Nature's Storehouse in Canton who has generously agreed to support the entire 2018 preservation series.

Upcoming workshops
Fun with Fermentation on August 28th
Preserving Tomatoes on September 22nd

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.)
