Food Preservation and Preparation

Homegrown Minneapolis Logo

Many Minneapolis residents are growing their own produce during the summer, but what do you do with that abundant supply of fresh food come fall and how do you preserve food to last you through the winter months? There are many classes offered throughout the city (sometimes free of charge) that will teach you how to can, freeze, and preserve fresh food that you grow yourself or that you buy at a market/store. Many organizations are also starting community cooking classes where you can learn to cook seasonal produce with your neighbors. Learn more below.
