Food Preservation

Delicious and Safe Home-Preserved Foods

Berries & rosehips, salmon & halibut, venison & grouse, carrots, cabbage, potatoes and apples... there's a bounty of food to grow and harvest in Southeast Alaska. But because each food has it's season, we extend our favorite harvests by using simple and safe food preservation methods, enjoying our local foods year-round.

If you've taken one of Sarah's classes, or are interested in food preservation, you'll find links here to the publications and class handouts she uses.


Preserving Juneau's Bounty Course

Sarah teaches this hands-on, 6-class course twice a year as part of the Juneau School District's Community Schools program. It is taught in a Family and Consumer Science teaching kitchen at a local middle or high school. Each class is between 3 and 5 hours long and students take many jars of preserved foods to enjoy at home. The class is limited to 12 students so everyone gets lots of kitchen time. The next course will be held during the Spring Community Schools semester. Go to the Community Schools website for their information and registration schedules.

Outside of Juneau: This course can be modified to fill a weekend in any community in Southeast. Call Sarah if you'd like to bring her to town!
