Preserving the Maine Harvest begins with a session about drying, or dehydrating, food as a preservation method. Webinars to follow will focus on boiling water bath canning, pressure canning, fermenting and more. Instructors share recipes and techniques in an interactive format in this series that continues through the fall.

Registration is required; a $5 fee per session is optional. To receive the link and resources, register at extension.umaine.edu.
