Food Storage and Preservation To Save Food For A Rainy Day
Canning Your Organic Produce
Canning is a great way to preserve your food naturally. It’s done by placing your food inside containers, like jars, and heating them to destroy the bacteria and microorganisms in the food. Air is also driven out during the heating process, thereby creating a vacuum when the containers cool down.
Dehydrating Your Organic Harvest

Doing so destroys microorganisms and lets your food keep for a very long time. This is great if you want to keep your food for a longer period of time and save money as well.
