UCCE Master Food Preservers of Central Sierra
You have seen us at the County Fair! You may have even attended one of our FREE Food Preserving classes. UCCE Master Food Preserver volunteers are agents of the University of California and work through the UC Cooperative Extension to educate the community on the safe practices of food preservation, including pickling, making cheeses, sausages, preserves and much more.
This website is designed to help you find information about food safety and information about your local Master Food Preservers.
Canning on Smooth Cooktops
UCCE Master Food Preserver volunteers are frequently asked about canning on smooth cooktop stoves. It depends on the manufacturer's recommendation. Get more information from the National Center for Home Food Preservation about preserving on smooth cooktop stoves.
