Videos for Preserving Summer Harvests: Easy Jam, Cherry Preserves, and Dehydrated Fruit Leather


Summertime for many of us means taking advantage of all the wonderful spoils and capturing that by using different methods of food preservation so that we have garden-fresh produce for many seasons to come.

We love picking fruits of all kinds. From foraging for berries in our mountains, where we have to do a little climbing and work to get small pails of huckleberries, to simply sitting in the large patches of thimble and juneberries that blanket the forests.

 What we lack from the forest, we get from our own homestead or get from our generous neighbors who offer their organic fruit if we will do the picking. Living in a banana belt, we have a vast variety of fruit: apricots, peaches, plums, apples, pears, cherries and even some types of kiwi are able to thrive in our climate. All of it gets picked and preserved.

Although everything we harvest on our homestead is very much the same as many of you out there, generally, our way of preservation is different.

Living off the grid often requires us to approach things from a unique perspective. Old ways become new ways with a more organic and green outlook!
