Freeze-Drying Food

Asked June 6, 2018, 3:42 PM EDT

Are there any Extension handouts or factsheets related to the new home freeze-dryers and food safety related to the use of this new equipment?

I understand that some of the new equipment is expensive but have been asked to do an educational training this fall on our Indian reservation related to this technology as the community has purchased one of these units to be utilized by their local gardeners. Just needing help to prepare a training on this topic.

Hello Leslie,

I spoke with my Field Specialists who provide consumer food safety education and they would love to visit with you to help you prepare a training on this topic. They are creating new factsheets on topics like this all of the time, and would love to partner.
