Clark County UW-Extension Offers Guidelines for Canning

Sunday, June 1st, 2014 -- 9:04 AM

-When it comes to flavor and taste, few things compare to home-canned produce fresh from the garden. The home canning and preserving season will be here before we know it, so now is a good time to start preparing.

The Clark County UW-Extension Office offers three general guidelines for safe food preservation which includes, inspecting and repairing any food preservation equipment at the beginning of the season, having dial-gauge pressure canners tested for accuracy and always following an up-to-date tested recipe from a reliable source.

You can find the most up-to-date recipes, how-to videos, online lectures and more to help you safely can fruit, jams and jellies, meat, pickles, salsa, tomatoes, and vegetables; plus information on freezing fruits and vegetables at the ?Safe and Healthy: Preserving Food at Home? blog at http://fyi.uwex.edu/safepreserving.
