4-week Food Preservation Class in Juneau
Berries and rosehips; salmon and halibut; venison and grouse; carrots, cabbage, potatoes and apples….there’s a bounty of food to grow and harvest and hunt in Southeast Alaska. But each has its season. Why not extend your favorite harvest season by learning to safely and simply preserve Juneau’s bounty. In this class you will learn to: make sauerkraut, pickles, infused vinegars, jams and jellies. We’ll also pressure can fish, meat and vegetables in jars, dehydrate fruit and vegetables, grind sausage and make jerky.
Sarah Lewis is the Family and Community Development Agent for the Juneau District of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service.
Sarah fishes, hunts, harvests and gardens just like most Juneauites, and loves to open home-canned jars of sauerkraut and applesauce in the middle of winter.
