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.
