Master Food Preserver Manual

I recently added a “resources” tab to my blog, to which I have been adding some of my favourite extension service publications, and products I love. In preparation for the upcoming preservation season, I had been thinking to myself, “how could I make this as useful and accessible to people as possible?” What I came up with was to provide you with all of the resources that are available in my Master Food Preserver notebook. When I started the MFP program last year, I got the notebook pictured below, which has a ton of different extension service publications complied into one handy (albeit giant) binder. So I wanted to make that virtually available to you in a well organized fashion, until I found out it is already available online! So exciting!! So if you are looking for basically all the publications that you need to safely prepare and preserve food safely at home click here. It’s all available free online on the OSU extension website – who knew! This is an amazing and FREE resource, check it out! The key was that it’s under faculty resources. All these publications are available online, but this is the first time I’ve seen them all organized together. Of course the tips for volunteers section isn’t important for you, but the rest of the chapters are nicely laid out and accessible. Enjoy, and happy preserving!

Do you refer to extension service publications? What’s your go-to source for recipes and instructions?

  1. Excellent! I do pull up extension service publications and definitely refer my canning students to them. I also have the local rep on speed dial and frequently consult him on any issues I have. We have a new Master Food Volunteer program that I suspect is somewhat similar to this one. Training was this past winter but I didn’t really have the time to devote to it. One of these days perhaps, although while I like volunteering and do a good bit of it, I’m more into paying jobs at this point.
