Food Preservation

Presented by Marisa Bunning & Elisa Shackelton

  • Class Level: Beginner-Intermediate
  • Cost: $12.50
  • Location: Virtual class hosted by Zoom Webinars


Course Description

Most recipes and instructions for home-preserved foods are developed at sea level and can present both food quality and food safety challenges for cooks living above 3,000 feet–which is everybody in Colorado! This presentation will focus on the impacts of elevation on food preservation and give an overview of CSU Extension’s Preserve Smart program including selecting a preservation method and using the right equipment.


Presented by Marisa Bunning & Elisa Shackelton
