New National Center for Home Food Preservation Blog: Preserving Food at Home

When I’ve got food preservation questions–about food safety or I need a reliable recipe–I go to the National Center for Home Food Preservation. The Center provides science based food preservation advice and is funded by the USDA.

They launched a blog in November, Preserving Food at Home that is now in my blog reader. Recent holiday-centric posts have covered tips on freezing leftovers, how to ship homemade foods and what to do with a pumpkin surplus as well as the dangers of pumpkin butter.

Home food preservation is very safe but, to be honest, I’ve been alarmed at a few of the questions I’ve received while interacting with the public as a Master Food Preserver. Preserving Food at Home is an important food safety resource and I’m looking forward to reading their weekly posts.

  1. It’s great that you provided this link. It’s so important to follow up-to-date instructions for canning. Books on canning from the 1970s may be fun to read, but many recommendations (including those about dense purees like pumpkin butter) have changed since then.
