Learn to dry foods and herbs safely
Lightweight foods that don’t need refrigeration are great for hiking and backpacking. And those who enroll in a hands-on workshop will learn how to save money and preparation time by making their own dried foods and herbs.
Learn the principles of drying food and how to enjoy some of your favorite foods year-round by practicing safe preparation of foods May 18, at a workshop taught by OSU Extension Master Food Preservers Katie Ahern and Mary Lowe.
Participants will make jerky that is safe from harmful bacteria and taste a variety of dried fruits and veggies in recipes prepared in the class. The class will be held at the OSU Deschutes County Extension office at the Fairgrounds in Redmond, from 9 a.m. to noon. Cost of the workshop is $15. The registration fee includes products made in the lab and “how-to” booklets. Class size is limited, and the deadline for registration is May 16. Call the OSU Deschutes County Extension office at 541-548-6088 to reserve a spot.
Not all food preservation recipes are safe. OSU Extension recommends only using tested recipes. Food preservation booklets can be purchased at your local county Extension office, or ordered or downloaded for free online at http://extension.oregonstate.edu/fch/food-preservation.
