Canning vs Feezeing
I planning my to start a garden this spring and I'm trying to figure out the best way to preserve the bountiful harvest I'm dreaming of. I'm planning on planting peas, carrots, green beans, onions, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, strawberries, lettuces, corn, cucumbers, spinach, zucchini, radishes, and herbs.
I know that canning is cheaper in the long term and more stable in case of power loss. Freezing is more expensive due to continual power usage, and you can suffer great loss if power is out for long amounts of time. I've not had my power knocked out for more than a few hours since I've lived in my house (5 years).
I want to be frugal but also keep the best taste and flavor of the food. So what are your recommendations? Can, Freeze or combination?
