Safely Preserving Food



With so many fresh vegetables coming from our gardens this summer, it’s time to think of how to preserve their freshness and flavor for the fall and winter months.


It is important to use the most recent tested recipes for food preservation. Two of the best sources for these are the books “So Easy to Preserve” by the Cooperative Extension-University of Georgia and “The USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A third book is the “Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving” by Ball Newell Brands. Be sure to use the most recent editions of these books as recommended safe procedures change.
