Q: Do I have to use an approved recipe?

A: The Minnesota Department of Agriculture does not have an approval process for recipes or products. It is the responsibility of the cottage food producer to make and sell safe products. Remember, non-potentially hazardous foods do not require refrigeration to prevent growth of spoilage and pathogenic organisms. See Minnesota Department of Agriculture's types of food allowed guidance document. For recipes and resources, check out our resource hub.
