Welcome to UME’s home food preservation program:

Grow It Eat It Preserve It!

In Maryland, food preservation has become a hot topic. Everything from economics to a return to home gardening and interest in local, fresh food has fueled this resurgence. This has resulted in an increasing number of consumers wanting to learn up-to-date, evidence-based techniques for preserving foods at home. In addition, the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA), has identified home food processing and preservation as a priority food safety issue for Americans.
