Being able to properly store the food you produce is important to both your well-being and general peace of mind.
Being able to simply produce your own food is only half the battle. While innovations like greenhouses, grow-lights, and irrigation allow us to produce food year round in a variety of climates; having a stockpile set aside is always a good idea.
Whether you’re freezing produce or curing and drying meat, learning proper food storage techniques will allow you to hope for the best while you prepare for the worst. Best of all, by learning to preserve your own food, you’ll be cutting out all those harmful chemical preservatives adding “shelf life” to grocery store meals.
