Fall Harvest Week: Preserves
Tip #3: Consider Canning
Want to be a locavore this winter? Fall is a great time to stock your pantry with preserved food. The season's raspberries and blackberries are ideal for making jams and jellies. Try your hand at canning your favorite local veggies or experiment with pickling or drying. If you're not ready to make your own preserves, support sustainable businesses buy purchasing goods like homemade applesauce or local pickles through a CSA or at a farmers' market.
