Home Food Preservation & Storage

The Extension system has been publishing safe home food preservation recommendations since 1909.  In the nearly 100 years, we have come a long way in making home food preservation exceptionally safe.  The U.S.U. Food Safety Extension program is founded on those 100 years of research. 

Here is a brief list of the research-based and safe sources of home food preservation recipes and processes.
