What is food preserving?
Preserving food is a fantastic way to reduce ‘food waste’; traditionally done when there was an abundance of seasonal produce which could then be used at another time of year rather than being left to rot. Preserved food can include; jams, jellies, marmalades, pickles, chutneys as well as dehydrated or bottled produce and even fermented vegetables such as kimchi or sauerkraut
