The art of preserving food is ancient, and although it’s not exactly necessary in these days of refrigeration and deep-freezes, it seems that the urge to get back to those old-time, down-home flavors and techniques just keeps getting stronger. Canning, drying and freezing fresh produce allows you to “eat local and healthy” all year round. Plus, you will save money in the process!
Many classes and publications are available locally to help you learn how to preserve and can food safely.
