Pickle bill approved

This article was originally published in Foodnews

HOME canners, people who can their own foods, will now be allowed to sell their products in the US, thanks to new legislation dubbed the 'pickle bill'. Wisconsin's Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is overseeing the programme that lets home canners sell up to USD5 000 worth of foods that are naturally acidic or made acidic by processing, such as pickles, salsa and jams. DATCP enacted a temporary emergency rule that lets people sell their goods in the current growing season and is working on long-term administrative rules for the programme, which may take up to 18 months to implement. Up to now, only canned food sold prepared in licensed, commercial-grade kitchens could be sold in the state.
