Food Preservation Videos
Food Smart Colorado is a collection of information about food, nutrition and health, food safety, and various recipes and how-tos that has been developed over many years by faculty, staff, and student employees of CSU Extension.
Preserve Smart was developed by Colorado State University Extension in order to provide a trusted, mobile-friendly way to find and use tested food preservation recipes and instructions for any elevation–from sea level to high in the Rocky Mountains!
The recipes and instructions provided are current, research-based recommendations for most methods of home food preservation as determined by Colorado State University Extension and the National Center for Home Food Preservation–established with funding from the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture (CSREES-USDA).
People young and old are more concerned about current nutrition and health information. Extension publications, programs, information about hot topics, and links to other websites are just a click away. Topics include foodborne illness, food preparation, food preservation, food safety, high risk audiences, high altitude preparation, and nutrition & health.
From the homes we live in and the work we do to our families and other relationships, you’ll find Extension resources to help you navigate issues, concerns, and needs. Whether you have a question about financial literacy, energy efficiency, or elder or child-care issues, you’ll find the latest, most accurate data. Topics include energy, family relationships, finances, work, and housing.
