  • Spring is just around the corner and your garden will soon be producing tons of vegetables and fruits.  Or you may want to take advantage of farmer’s markets, road-side stands or you-pick operations located nearby. Preserving some of that food for use later in the year will give you great taste and good nutrition and will also make memories for a lifetime.
