Food Preserving. Drying.

Post by Keith » Fri Feb 23, 2018 8:01 pm

Drying foods is a centuries old method of preserving food either for the home or for trail food. You can dry all fruit & vegetables & you can make your own fruit leather. Drying is a good method if you have an excess. We dry foods & we bottle as well if it is warranted.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference.
