Food Preservation Resource 
CSU Extension has developed the
Preserve Smart app to assist home
food preservers 
in selecting the correct
processing time for
the elevation where
they live or will be
processing food. 

Elevations in Colorado 
are all above
3,000 feet and most food
preservation
processing times are given 
for sea
level with an adjustment calculated 
for
the actual altitude.  This app makes it 
easy to determine how  to safely
process 
foods.

The app works on Apple and Android
devices. Search for Preserve Smart or
