Can I preserve this?…….. Transition Streets 3.10

There is real value in having longer life preserved foods – dried fruit, vegetables, and meats; dehydrated products like spaghetti; bottled and canned foods (oxygen, bacteria, and mould free); jams & passata.

It is convenient at meal time, and help us extend seasonal foods.

Check out these Preserving Basics on a handy web page sponsored by Moonee Valley Council, Victoria.

PS: when buying preserved foods check the ingredients list –  see the Choice Magazine list of food additives to avoid, and how to recognise them.
