Attention Meat Lovers!

Do you enjoy fork tender meat that can be ready for a meal in just minutes? Then learn how to can meat!

Join us to learn firsthand how to safely preserve meat at home from our CCE Master Food Preservers.

Participants will get to taste test canned meat recipes too!

The Finger Lakes region has an abundant supply of locally raised and hunted meat. Whether you hunt for your own meat, buy it in bulk on sale at the grocery store, or buy whole or half animals straight from the farm, canning meat is a great way to preserve it. Canned meat is shelf stable, so there are no worries about your stored meat if the power goes out. Canned meat becomes very tender and is a great way to preserve meat that could otherwise be somewhat tough, like lean cuts of wild game or beef. It is also a great way to take advantage of large quantity sales at the grocery store, such as chicken breasts that can become chicken salad or many other entrees for a quick weekday meal. Learning to safely can animal products may help you solve the problem of freezer space when considering buying local meat or hunting. 

If you would like more information about consuming wild game and fish, Seneca County CCE in consultation with Cornell’s Department of Natural Resources, created an educational web resource, offering recipes, nutrition facts and information based on fish and game that is currently or soon to be in season.
