Joyce Houston, Master Food Preservers

Joyce Houston is one of the founding mothers of the Master Food Preservers of Humboldt County — MFPs volunteer their time demonstrating safe home food preservation and staffing a booth at the Farmers Market where the produce is fresh and sometimes overabundant (perfect for preserving!)…if you are interested in becoming a Master Food Preserver, the training is held once a year and only 12 people are accepted.  It is generally held the month of February on Saturdays (9-4) and Monday evenings (5:30-8:30).  You will learn about canning (both pressure and waterbath), dehydrating, fermenting, pickling, freezing and more!  Cost is $150 — contact the University of California Cooperative Extension for more information 445-7351.  There is a great facebook page if you are into Facebook…
