Bowen talks with BDN about safety of home-canned foods

The Bangor Daily News spoke with Laurie Bowen, University of Maine Cooperative Extension food system aide, about preserving only the amount of food someone will use and when to toss home canned goods. “Honey found in thousand-year-old Egyptian tombs is still good,” said Bowen. “But that’s not the case with home canning. If properly processed and preserved, food is good for a year.”
