As of Spring 2017, St. Lawrence County has a Master Food Preserver volunteer group.
Topics include 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.)
We are taking a break during the start of winter, but keep your eyes out for the announcement of our 2018 preservation classes.
The Canton Community Fund generously supported the establishment of this program by underwriting the 3-day Master Food Preserver Training.
