Food Preservation

There is nothing like the taste of fresh-from-the-garden vegetables and fruits. But food begins to spoil quickly after harvesting unless it is preserved. Let WVU Extension’s Food and Nutrition specialists guide you through the food preservation process.

Extension specialists offer canning and other food preservation classes across the state. To see if WVU Extension is hosting a canning training class in your area, contact your local Extension office.
