Food Preservation Resources Publication

During the growing and harvesting season, you can obtain many varieties of fruits and vegetables. Home food preservation can help make fruits, vegetables and food budgets last longer. When canning home-preserved foods use research-based, laboratory tested, up-to-date recipes from the links on this page and in the WSU Extension Food Preservation Resources brochure.

Everything you need to know about canning and food preservation is available in USDA’s Complete Guide to Home Canning. This resource is for people canning for the first time or for experienced canners wanting to improve their canning practices. The information is based on research conducted by the National Center for Home Food Preservation in cooperation with USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA).
