Kate Ryan has been canning ever since she learned from her grandmother as a child. Throughout the years, her failures prompted a quest to learn the best and safest methods for home food preservation. When WSU revived their home food preservation training program several years ago, it was the perfect opportunity for Kate to brush off her skills and learn the most up-to-date science and protocols for safe food preservation.
