What you'll learn
  • You'll learn how to use your house, fridge, and freezer for simple and fast food preserving.
  • Have a garden or access to in season vegetables at a local market.

You don’t have to garden year round to enjoy food from your garden 12 months of the year. You can make every harvest last longer by learning how to quickly and easily preserve vegetables at the height of their season.

Imagine having friends over for a winter brunch and popping open a jar of strawberry sauce to drizzle on pancakes. Picture hosting your family for a fall cookout and serving grilled pizza featuring pesto, peppers, and broccoli grabbed from your freezer. The food you grow during the season can be used in meals and celebrations all year long when you take the time to preserve some if it.

Preserving food is simple! It doesn’t have to be difficult or take up a lot of time. And if you think canning is the only option – this class is for you! I’ll teach you how easy it can be to use your basement, fridge and freezer instead.

The class includes a digital copy of my print book, Super Easy Food Preserving. The book features:

  • the easiest and quickest ways to put away vegetables, fruits and herbs for out of season eating

  • a focus on fresh, fridge and freezer storage (no canning involved!)

  • my favorite varieties for storage

  • the short list of supplies needed for preserving

  • the best storage containers for each vegetable

  • clear and concise directions for preparation and storage

  • my favorite recipes for using your stored vegetables in delicious meals all year long

  • feel like food preserving is a fun challenge instead of a dreaded chore!

Make your garden harvests last all year round! Nothing quite matches the thrill of cooking meals during the off season with vegetables you grab right from your own kitchen. Super Easy Food Preserving will show you how simple food preserving can be. 

Who this course is for:
  • This class is for people who love fresh vegetables and want to learn how to quickly and easily preserve them for use in delicious recipes during the off season.
