Apache Food Safety and Preservation
Home canning is used by many residents of Apache County to preserve and store food. Apache County Cooperative Extension provides up to date scientific methods for preserving foods at home. Thirty to forty canner pressure gauges are tested yearly at the extension office and preparedness fairs in Round Valley and St. Johns. Fifty one-on-one inquiries about food preservation were provided through telephone calls, e-mails or drop ins at the extension office.
