Information on How to Preserve your Harvest

Q.  After a wonderful growing experience, we find ourselves with an overflow of vegetables and fruits.  How do we preserve them, in order to use them throughout the year?

A.  I will address “root cellar” storage in another response, but for actual preserving I recommend you visit another good website as follows:  Check out www.HomesteadHarvest.com  as an excellent resource for guides, tutorials and unique equipment for preserving fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and even nuts and grains.  They offer a free copy of “101 Fresh Garden Recipes” when visitors sign up for their free monthly newsletter, and they include a free 73 page ebook on preserving, called “The Beginner’s Guide to Preserving,” with every purchase.
