Preserving Your Harvest |Recipes, Tips and Ideas

Preserving Your Harvest |Recipes, Tips and Ideas

Enjoy Your Garden’s Bounty All Year

I’ve teamed up with some of my garden blogger friends to bring you recipes, tips and ideas to preserve your harvest. These bloggers are real gardeners who preserve their harvest every season. The best part of growing your own food is eating it. However, you know that when the garden produce starts coming in, it can pile up real fast!

By mid-summer I sweating away in front of my canning pot trying to capture my summer’s garden peak ripeness in a jar. I used to hate canning, but as I got more creative with what I was preserving, I find that I look forward to canning season. I especially appreciate the sweat and effort in the middle of winter as I enjoy my homegrown blueberry jam on toast with a steaming cup of coffee.

Where to Begin

I learned how to preserve from countless videos, books and family. Recently, I discovered a podcast by Theresa Loe of Living Homegrown. If you ever wanted to get started in preserving and want all the facts without being bored to death, check out her podcast. She also has a website filled with valuable information. She’s easy to listen to and gives great information about the science behind preserving in a fun and practical way.
