Talk with others about the cottage food industry in Wyoming
Hi all! So I have a question regarding fish. My husband smokes wild caught fish (squaw candy as he calls it) and has expressed a desire to maybe try selling it. Does this count as a none perishable under the cottage law or, because it is fish will it require inspection and licensing?
Thanks for the response and that’s good to know, though it is possible to make salsa in a way that is non-potentially hazardous. It sounds like the dept is generally staying away from salsas at this time, which are known (along with other canned vegetables) to be one of the most risky cottage foods.
John, you may be able to can the salsa under Wyoming’s cottage food law, assuming that your salsa has a pH of 4.6 or below. You would need to check with the ag dept (Dean – 307-777-6587 or Linda – 307-777-6592) to see if they would allow salsa in general, or if your product needs to be tested. You wouldn’t be able to sell the salsa uncanned.
