While my garden is in a bit of a lull at the moment, I know in the back of my mind that harvest time is just around the corner. Perhaps this year more than ever, I’m focused on preserving everything I possibly can.
In this podcast episode, I cover the four primary methods that I use to make sure our family takes full advantage of our harvest: canning, freezing, dehydrating, and fermenting. Discover why a method of preservation could be great for one type of food but not good for another. I also reveal my all-time favorite way to store foods for the winter (hint: this should be pretty easy to guess for my long time listeners).
