LH 01: The Benefits of Preserving

Welcome to Episode #01 of the Living Homegrown Podcast!

It’s a Q & A session where I answer a “Q” from a reader of the blog.

In this episode you learn:

  • Why canning is NOT just about saving food for later
  • The “aha” moment that changed my perspective on preserving food forever
  • What we can do to bump up flavor
  • How knowledge is power – especially with food
  • How all food has a story & why we should care
  • Several compelling reasons we should want to preserve
  • How to handle the doubters who don’t “get” what we do

Resources & Links Mentioned in the Episode:

Note: If I ever have funny blooper outtakes, I promise to add them to the end of the show – so you can laugh at me. Ha!  I have a good one at the end of this episode.  Just listen to the very end – right after the music outro.

Tee hee hee…
