It is a popular method to preserve venison or "tough," cuts of meat. Join this class to demystify the process and see the steps in action from beginning to end. With the right tools and knowledge, this method can be empowering, not intimidating!

The instructors for this in-person class are Local Food Program Leader Flip Filippi and Master Food Preserver volunteers.
