Cody, Powell programs focus on food dehydration

Learning about food dehydration techniques and equipment is the focus of two free programs sponsored by the University of Wyoming Extension this June in Cody and Powell.

The Cody program is 12:10-12:50 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, in the EOC room in the basement of the Park County Courthouse. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch.

The Powell program is 5:10-5:50 p.m. in the Powell Library.

Phyllis Lewis, nutrition and food safety educator based in Worland, will lead the programs and share her knowledge of dehydrating fruits, vegetables and meats for jerky.

“Dried foods make healthy, light-weight trail snacks on summer expeditions,” said Sandra Frost, extension educator. “Not all dehydrators are created equal. Come and learn about dehydration efficiency and safety.”

No RSVP is necessary. For moreinformation, contact Frost at 307-754-8836 or
