Enjoying Bounty From the Garden

Enjoying Bounty from the Garden

While it has been a somewhat difficult growing season due to the weather, fresh produce is available. When preserving fresh produce to enjoy months from now, keep this information in mind.
 • Only preserve the best quality produce. Canning and freezing do not improve the quality.
• Process or freeze fresh produce as quickly as possible after harvested.
• Keep surfaces clean by washing hands, knives, cutting boards and counter tops.
• Make certain to use the correct instructions. Canning instructions are updated every five years. Over time, information on processing as well as times have changed. Contact your county extension office for the most current information.
• Label products with date of when product was processed, and contents in container. If produce is being frozen, list the amount measured into the container.
