‘Lunch and Learn’: Drying Foods at Home

A food preservation Lunch and Learn will take place on Monday, August 19, from noon to 1 p.m., at the Iron County Courthouse. The topic will be making food dehydration. The Lunch and Learn will originate on the campus of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and be transmitted to attendees by computer web connection.

The session will highlight tips and techniques for successfully dehydrating fruits, vegetables, and meats, and making fruit and vegetable leather. Time will be spent discussing the features one should look for when selecting a dehydrator.

Andrea Newby of UW-Extension and Lucia Patritto of MSU Extension will host the session. Both educators will be available to answer food preservation questions following the webinar. Participants may bring lunch or a snack, as they wish.

There is no charge to attend, but registration would be appreciated so that seating can be arranged. Please call UW Extension at (715) 561-2695 or MSU Extension at (906) 663-4045 to register. After-hours callers may leave their name and the number of people attending.
