Master food preserver training offered locally

The Yakima County Washington State University Extension is now taking applications for its master food preserver training, which begins in April.

Participants will learn the latest methods of preserving food, including dehydrating, freezing, canning, pickling, making fruit spreads, food safety and how to prevent food borne illness.

The course will begin with an orientation on March 29. There will be six classes on consecutive Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning April 12. Each class will include lectures and hands-on activities during the lab time.

The cost of the course is $45 with a commitment of 35 hours of volunteer service, or $125 if participants choose not to volunteer their services. Those interested in registering for the course are asked to contact the WSU Extension office (509-574-1600).
