MSU Extension offers Preserving Your Harvest online classes

    As gardens are growing, thoughts turn to the ripening overflow of shiny, red tomatoes, bright green peppers and other delicious home-grown goodies along with farmers markets filled with fresh produce. Why not save some of this bounty to enjoy all through the year? Food preservation is a science, and we must properly preserve food or dangerous bacteria can cause foodborne illness.
