Preserving the harvest. What's your favorite method?
Hey y'all I'm a newbie here but I've been loving the posts lately about preserving our harvests. I just wanted to know what your favorite method is. I've tried it all. I did a lot of canning last year but haven't done any yet this year because my yields were down, AND because I'm in love with my dehydrator. I can do small batches of multiple veggies and it is so much more kid friendly for the time I have available to preserve. I put dehydrated veggies into winter soups and sauces and am really pleased with the results. I also freeze produce (lots of pesto this year! Yay!) but I use the ziplock vacuum seal system instead of the food saver vacuum seal system because my food saver didn't last more than two seasons and it's just too expensive to replace all the time. Oh and i use those awesome ball freezer containers too. I'd love any advice you have or tips on what you have found that works.
