Who We Are & What We Do
We teach food preservation & food safety.
Get your preserving on! The UCCE Master Food Preservers of Sacramento County are here to help you understand how easy it is to can, pickle, ferment, dehydrate and freeze food safely at home using research-based methods.
Fun and affordable classes - learn step-by-step methods to preserve food at home:
- Canning: Boiling Water, Steam and Pressure Canning
- Dehydrating & Freezing
- Pickling & Fermenting
UCCE Master Food Preservers volunteers are trained and experienced educators, certified by the University of California to lead demonstrations at the Branch Center and participate in farmers markets, community festivals, and other county events.
The program is a public service of the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, administered locally by the UC Cooperative Extension office of Sacramento County.
