The University of Wyoming Extension has released a free online course on how to use electric pressure cookers to prepare healthy and inexpensive meals.

The online course, which is approximately an hour long, introduces the device’s components and settings, then demonstrates how to safely operate and clean it. An e-booklet with budget-friendly recipes adapted for electric pressure cookers is also provided.

The self-paced course is designed with Wyoming cooks in mind, using recipes from CNP’s signature cookbook and explaining how to adjust other recipes for higher altitude locations. To view the online course, visit
