Food Preservation

Students in Milton Hershey School’s Culinary Arts career technical pathway examine the many ways food can be preserved. See how they learn about the decades-old issue of keeping the over-abundance of crops and meats fresh for winter consumption. In this unit, the students prepare various meats to be smoked, make cider and quarter apples for apple butter, and process ground meat to create home made hot dogs/sausages. We caught up with the classes this week as they experience the final steps in these food preservation techniques. It is a wonderful opportunity to savor the extraordinary flavors, smells, and beauty of the harvest season.
