Bowen speaks with WABI about food preservation workshop

WABI (Channel 5) reported the University of Maine Cooperative Extension will host a series of hands-on food preservation workshops. Laurie Bowen, a community education assistant with UMaine Extension, will lead the first class in Bangor, WABI reported. Bowen said the course, which covers the basics of safely canning food, is great for beginners or canners looking to refresh their skills. “We also invite canners that have been at it for a long time. We have recipes that change, techniques that change. The science of it changes. So we really need to use the most up-to-date methods, the most up-to-date equipment,” she said.
