Home Food Production and Processing is on the Rise, UG says
To support the rising popularity of home canning and other food preservation methods in American households, The University of Georgia Extension program is offering valuable tips and resources to make the process safe and successful. With support from the National Center for Home Food Preservation, UGA Extension provides a source of current research-based recommendations which aims to reduce risk from foodborne illness and spoilage. Many participants hold on to traditional methods of food storage but UGA Extension points out the necessity to apply science-based recommendations in order to defend against modern day threats. Adhering to health precautions will act to further the presence of locally grown foods and artisan interests in today’s consumer food world.
