These days it’s easy to eat food from across the globe. That said, eating produce that grows close to home tastes better and is better for the planet! To enjoy local flavours all year long, preservation techniques that have existed for a really long time can be useful. Discover or rediscover these techniques and practice! Here’s to your jars!
