Christina Ward

I'm a Wisconsin Master Food Preserver and writer. I love learning and teaching. My work focuses on the history of the food we eat, why we eat it, and the people who make it. I teach notoriously raucous preservation classes wherever I can set up my pots! Order my book, Preservation: The Art and Science of Canning, Fermentation and Dehydration for more.
