Gardeners and other lovers of fresh produce are often interested in extending the season's bounty by learning more about preserving fruits and vegetables at home.  Ohio State University Extension Family and Consumer Sciences teach the basics of home canning and preservation through demonstrations and workshops.  We emphasize the science behind preservation so than everyone who cans or freezes fresh fruits and vegetables understands why certain procedures must be followed precisely to ensure a high-quality, safe product that they and their family can enjoy.

Home Food Preservation educational offerings typically address:

  • Basic food safety principles.
  • Proper home canning equipment including how to use a water bath canner and a pressure canner.
  • Canning fruits and vegetables.
  • Freezing fruits and vegetables.
  • Drying fruits and vegetables.
