Tools For Preserving Foods For The Winter

I love spending time in my gardens growing fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and a wide range of perennials, annuals and cut flowers. As the summer season winds down, it’s time to harvest many crops; which often leaves us with an abundance of produce that we can’t possibly consume while the food is still at its nutritional best!

You could share some of your bountiful harvest with friends, family and neighbours, donate to your local foodbank, and you can preserve your foods for the winter too. I love grabbing a jar of my bottled garden harvest during the winter months from my pantry; it brings back memories of the growing season, plus it’s so delicious and fresh tasting!

Preserving foods is fairly simple to do but there are some essential tools which you’ll need, to start canning, drying, pickling, fermenting, freezing and saving your harvest for the months to come.
