As we enter the busy harvest season, it is time to brush up on safe food preservation procedures. Be sure to follow research-tested recipes for safe, high quality food that your family will enjoy. Your county UW-Extension office has a wealth of information available on freezing and canning fresh fruits and vegetables with up-to-date tested recipes. The information is also available online at http://foodsafety.wisc.edu/.Pressure canner dial gauge testing can be done at the Grant County UW-Extension Office, at no cost to you! The USDA recommends checking these gauges for accuracy before use each year. Just bring the entire lid to your county office. Testing the pressure dial guage for accuracy only takes a few minutes.
Begin the busy food preservation season by updating your resources so that you can be sure that you are preserving safe, high quality food for your family to enjoy.
