Preserving the Harvest Back »

Written by Lavonne Meyer (former SDSU Extension Food Safety Field Specialist).


Interest in food preservation has increased because consumers: 1) would like to gain control over the foods they eat, 2) aim to save grocery dollars by preserving their own food and, 3) desire to add value to their products by processing fruits and vegetables within their own homes, and selling them to the general public. This interest in growing produce and/or purchasing locally grown food has increased the need for correct food preservation information, such as canning and freezing.
