therein lies my problem .... because everything is so fresh. i find it impossible not to indulge my family in the fresh bounty that is available to us. BUT .... but ... we are plagued with something in the air that makes fresh food go off .... FAST. i understand why people keep so much stuff in their fridge! it's the only way to make it last.
i reckon it is the best way for me to continue to buy these great foods and not have them going to waste. given that we live in a rental right now, it breaks my heart to watch the scrapes go out in the bin rather than feeding some hungry animal that will process the food back into the soil.
so one of my eventual resolutions for 2012 gets bumped to the top of the ladder ...
i have no real idea of where to start.... except to begin with some google searches. i know a few of the good blogs i follow do some preserving .... so i'll see what insights they have to offer. but hold me accountable. ask why you haven't seem a blog post. school goes back on the 30th and i'll have no excuse not to give it some serious attention.
- i need to get my hands on cheap jars.
- is it all about jams or what about these stories i read about preserving veggies as well?
- do i need new fangled equipment?
this is one blog post where i crave your feedback (well, i always do .... but this time especially!). what is your favorite web site on the issue? what about electronic pod cast resources that i can listen to? anything to help me out! <g> please!!!!!!!
