4-H Home Food Preservation Series: Freezing Project Manual
For ages 8-18, the freezing project manual covers the basics of healthy eating and food safety and specific instructions for freezing fruits; juices; vegetables; meat, fish, and poultry; and convenience foods such as pizza. Sixteen hands-on activities engage youth in freezing a variety of foods and using frozen foods in recipes, menus, and taste tests. Each activity concludes with questions for further learning. The manual follows USDA food-preservation guidelines. Other manuals in the series deal with food drying (ages 8-18), boiling water canning (ages 8-18), and pressure canning (ages 14-18).
