What can you do with a large quantity of local produce? Preserve it! This section focuses on ways to preserve fruits and vegetables by freezing or dehydrating them. Recipes can be adapted to use whichever fruits or vegetables you have available. Remember, preservation takes time so the final product may not be ready during the same school day.
Have more fun with the foods you preserve! Some lessons connect to recipes in other sections of the website. For example, dried fruit can be used in the Trail Mix or Granola recipes from the ‘Cook it’ section.
