The homesteading movement, or clean food movement, needs more people behind it. People who will manage a sustainable garden, raise livestock for meat, and preserve the year’s harvest - keeping them from being reliant on all supermarkets. What sets us apart from big-box grocery stores? We truly, and undoubtedly, experience seed to pantry. As a home food preserver we know every ingredient going into our canned goods, which is necessary for those with a restricted diet.
I began studying methods for preserving foods the moment I began homesteading. As a Master Food Preserver, and author of a preserving book, I questioned everything I was taught. Not because I didn't trust the information, but because there were many loopholes I found in the teachings. In addition to this, many credible resources did not teach how to preserve foods during unforeseen circumstances, a necessary skill to own.
My goal is to teach you how to think sustainably. Scientific and traditional preserving methods have a place in home food preservation, as long as you know how to confidently make the decisions on your chosen methods. Allow me to teach you how to think freely, safely, and with confidence.
