Home Food Preservation: Wild Game
September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
About the workshop
Home Food Preservation: Wild Game will explain the scientific reasoning behind today’s recommended methods for preserving wild game while dispelling food preservation myths and unsafe practices of the past. In recent years, there has been increasing interest in home food preservation. Canning, freezing, and drying are preservation methods that allow you to enjoy the fruits of your hunt all year. While these home food preservation methods have existed for centuries, we have learned a lot about the science behind these practices in recent years.
Attend this two-hour workshop to learn best practices for preserving wild game.
