Eating Local in Winter: Preserves

Homemade jellies and jams Depending on your region, maintaining a local diet all year long can either be a snap or a supreme challenge. This week we'll explore options for eating locally during the winter months.

Tip #3: Embrace Canning, Jellying, Drying, and Pickling

If your kitchen is already stocked with homemade preserves, we applaud you. Never got around to making those jellies and jams? You can still support regional farmers and businesses by purchasing locally produced pickles, canned vegetables, and jellies. Sustainable Table will help you find a food co-op in your area, and LocalHarvest lists the local farms that sell preserves. If the idea of canning your own veggies is appealing, start preparing now by gathering the supplies you'll need this summer.
