Food Preservation and Nutrition Workshops

bowls of peppers, green beans, and a bunch of carrots with canner and canning jarsEver wonder how to preserve and use all of that great locally-grown produce? University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s food preservation workshops will teach you the basics of canning and freezing, including how to use pressure canners and water bath canners to preserve pickles, jam, and vegetables. Nutrition workshops deliver cost-effective tips for using local foods in a healthy way. Workshops are taught by UMaine Extension staff and Master Food Preserver volunteers.

All workshops will take place virtually until further notice.
