Best Food Preservation Methods for This Season

Canning, Drying, Freezing and More!

While harvesting fresh food from your garden might not be in the cards for the next few months, there’s no reason you can’t still eat fresh food from the garden. The secret? Food preservation.

Food preservation techniques have been around just about as long as we humans have, and they’re still some of the best ways to make sure that you have food long after your gardening season is over.

However, not all food preservation methods are the same. Some are easier than others, some are safer than others, and some plants can only be preserved in certain ways.

No matter which method you choose, properly sanitizing and following all safety precautions is a must, as improperly preserved food can cause serious health problems.
