When you’ve got a lot of produce to preserve, there are only so many bottles of jam you and your family can stomach. What else can you do with 20kg of tangelos or 10 litres of berries?
And how do you go about keeping other goods for long periods of time like red meat, fish, potatoes, carrots and onions?
This special edition from NZ Lifestyle Block shows those wanting to be more self-sufficient how to do the more traditional preserving techniques that previous generations used to keep food delicious tasting and nutritious for as long as possible: • drying and dehydrating • smoking and curing of meat and fish • sausage-making • cold storage • basic cheeses, yoghurt and butter • drinks including liqueurs • preserving with oil, sugar, alcohol and vinegar
