Preserving food at home is a great way to extend your garden's harvest and to reduce food waste. While none of the practices we use to preserve foods are difficult, it is important to follow tested recipes and techniques to ensure that you—or your family—are not exposed to food-borne pathogens.
In order to be safe you should:
- Only used tested recipes
- Use a preservation technique appropriate for the type of food
- Make sure food and cooking areas are clean
- Don't eat anything you're in doubt about
- If you have questions about preserving food, ask us! (email@example.com)
