This is one of the University of Wyoming Extension Service's courses for home cooks and managers of canned food processing operations around the region. This one is online (a Zoom broadcast of the session).
Acidified Foods Processing (FDA approved) will be online in Sheridan February 4 and 5. A live broadcast will be available. It will also be in Jackson (in-person only) March 3 and 4.
Acidified Foods Processing (home processing) will be in person in Casper February 12. A live broadcast will be available. It will also be in Powell (in-person only) March 6.
Home processors and those selling under the Wyoming Food Freedom Act will be most interested in the home course since it covers canning, preserving and pickling. People preserving food for resale or sale across state lines will be interested in the FDA course.
“Each course typically costs hundreds of dollars, but the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service is providing backing. We’re very excited to be supporting Wyoming’s food entrepreneurs,” said Cole Ehmke who is leading the project.
Registration includes a printed book, online instruction, and testing. Registrations will be taken up to the time of the class, provided that the class is not full.
The course instructor has vast experience and knowledge of food regulations, processing and safety, and is a recognized processing authority who educates and assists food entrepreneurs and food companies.
