Food Preservation

Food preservation can save you time and money, if done properly.  Special precautions have to be taken to ensure that our food is safe from bacteria growth.  We strongly recommend that you only use tested preservation recipes.

Our local offices are equipped with Pressure Dial Guage Testing Units that are available to test your personal dial gauges on your pressure canners.  It is recommended that gauges are checked every year, please contact your local office to set up a time to have your gauge checked.
