Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County will be offering a 3-day Master Food Preserver workshop on Tuesday – Thursday, June 26–28, 2018 to be held at PS 93 Southside Elementary School, room 156, located at 430 Southside Pkwy. in Buffalo.

This training is for those who would like to go beyond the basics of home food preservation, either for personal use or to help others learn how to safely preserve food. Participants in the 3-day intensive course receive a comprehensive food preservation note-book.

Using the safest, most updated information available, participants will learn the science of food preservation including food safety, gain hands-on experience with boiling water bath canning, pressure canning, jelled products, and quick pickling, plus observe demonstrations of freezing, drying, and fermentation. No prior experience in food preservation is required. For those seeking to progress toward obtaining a Master Food Preserver certificate from Cornell Cooperative Extension, a post-test will be given the third day of the workshop.

Workshop sessions will run June 26, 27 and 28th from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM each day.

Cost for the three-day workshop is $300, and includes lunch each day.
