Food Preservation and Canning


Food Preservation and Canning has always been an essential component of Family and Consumer Sciences. Our Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent is your source for up-to-date, research-based information on canning and food preservation methods. Extension offers a number of resources for food preservation and canning education including publications, fact sheets, blog posts, and hands-on workshops and classes. Call the Stewart County Extension Office today for canning questions or to sign up for a canning workshop. 

You can also purchase a copy of So Easy to Preserve, UGA Extension's go-to guide for canning and other food preservation methods. All of the recipes have been formatted, tested and updated routinely by our Food Safety and Preservation Extension Specialists. Call today to order your copy.
