Wash Produce Before Preserving

Deb Botzek-Linn, Extension Educator — Food Safety

Reviewed 2014 by author.

Dirt and germs on the surface of fresh produce can be passed to the flesh when the fruit or vegetable is cut. As a result, it is important to follow good washing guidelines when preparing produce for preserving. To avoid contaminating produce, don't forget to wash hands well!
