Preserve Smart App

Colorado State University has developed a new food preservation app to help make canning a bit easier. The app is called “Preserve Smart” and is currently available for Apple iOS devices only. But it can be used on any computer.

This program is unique in that it starts by asking you to enter your elevation. The program will remember that elevation throughout the system. So it will highlight the processing instructions for your location in each recipe. Also, the program has freezing and dehydrating instructions. There are recipes for canning fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, pickles and fermentation.

The website address for this program is Search the Apple app store for Preserve Smart to download it to your mobile Apple device.
