One way to eat locally grown food all year (other than joining a CSA
) is to get crazy about preserving the last of your summer produce. And we don't mean just canning
We recently came across an article in Mother Earth News all about the many ways you can eat local all year long. We're talking canning, fermenting and pickling, freezing, drying and dehydrating, and using a root cellar.
If you had the time and resources to do all of this, you could be eating summer produce year round, every single year.
We know a lot of you can. How many of you dehydrate and freeze?
