As simple as freezing foods sounds, there are multiple techniques to keep frozen food quality high. Learn how to freeze food so you want to eat it instead of toss it.
Drying Food: Dehydrating is an easy and economical way to preserve large quantities of fresh produce in small containers. Learn how dehydrating food works and what makes it a safe preservation technique. Explore different styles of dehydrators and see several other drying techniques that require minimal effort and supplies. Leave confident in your abilities to dehydrate food for storage and then rehydrate food for meals.
