In the Finger Lakes region, we have over 6,500 farms and 1.5 M acres of farmland. We have an abundance of wild game and fish to harvest. What are we going to do with all this fresh, homegrown produce, meat, and wild game? Preserve it for the winter! ' Let’s Preserve It!' Workshop series will show you some new ideas to safely store local food through the winter months.
CCE Seneca will be hosting and conducting a series of how to preserve it workshops with our local master preservers, nutritionist, wild harvest nutritionist and master gardeners. These experts with their vast knowledge will show you tricks, techniques, and safe procedures to get the most out of our great local food.
You will be leaving each class with a sample to try at home and the knowledge to make each cost-effective recipe yourself. With these healthy recipes, you will know the exact ingredients you are eating and feeding your family. When winter arrives and you crack open your preserved bounty you will feel accomplished and happy knowing you are eating close to the land.
Join the 'Let’s Preserve It' Workshop series today!
