Food Preservation:
Extension offers a variety of resources to help you preserve food safely.

  • Pressure Canner testing is available Monday through Friday during the office hours of 8:00-4:30. There is no charge to have your canner tested. We are sorry, but we no longer rent pressure canners.
  • We can also guide you to recipes tested by reliable sources, and advice on how to preserve food safely (see above links)
