Whether working with venison, beef, chicken or seafood, preserving meat is a way to add food to the pantry or freezer for use year-round. The class includes best practices for canning, dehydrating and freezing moose, venison, poultry, pork, fish and seafood. Lisa Fishman, a UMaine Extension nutrition education and food safety professional, will lead the class.
