What’s in Season Now – Preserving the Seasonal Bounty – Learn How Aug 29 with Angelic Organics Learning Center
How Do You Eat Local Year Round
The Local Beet advocates eating local, and we say all the time, the reasons we advocate for eating local do not end when the farmer’s markets pack up. How do we (and you!) do it. We put away the seasonal bounty! Over the years, we’ve put away on the site many articles and references about canning, preserving, root cellaring and such. This is the time to focus on putting away, and we will be re-posting several of our pieces in the coming weeks–just today, we re-posted this piece on canning tomatoes from long time Friend of the Beet, Damien Casten. We also would love to hear from you about your efforts. As much as we feel we can guide you, we know there is only so much you can read. You have to do, and it helps to have a good teacher. We have one for you.
