How To Preserve Your Harvest and The History Behind It

Caramelize Life

Oh the possibilities!

There are so many ways to put up and preserve the growing seasons bounty. Whether it be through drying, freezing, canning (both water-bath or pressure), dry storage, you name it the list is almost as long as people have been practicing these techniques.  Here you will find a ever changing compilation of my discoveries as I make each recipe, dabble in their histories and bumble through my mistakes. I’ll share it all so you can learn along with me.

  1. I’m interested in your pesto recipes. Are you willing to share? We just put a few batches of pesto in our freezer, including sundried tomato/chipotle, kalamata/mint, and a collard/green olive. But, we’re always looking for more easy noodle toppings for a quick week-night dinner. Happy to swap.
