Food Preservation


Home food preservation is a way to preserve the freshness of homegrown food.  
Are you thinking about canning food…or freezing or drying foods?
Use proper techniques and up-to-date, tested recipes. 
Any information prior to 1994 should not be used for home-canning.


You can find publications and links to a wealth of home food preservation information at K-State’s Rapid Response Center/Food Preservation site.
