You work hard all year to grow the garden. From selecting seeds, starting them, transplanting them and finally nurturing the plants to maturity, it takes patience and creativity. So when all of your crops are ready to harvest at once, it’s nearly impossible to cook enough dishes to use them all. Luckily we can employ the methods our ancestors took, and put up the year’s harvest. There’s about as many preservation methods as you can imagine, and you’ll be stocking your cupboard with wholesome, homegrown food. Just think how glad you’ll be in winter to crack open a little jar of summer.
