So I've decided to start putting food up this summer in an effort to reduce my carbon footprint this winter. Is anyone else putting food up these days? What have you been preserving and what looks good?
I'm using the classic books "Stocking Up" and "Putting Food By" and I'm starting tomorrow with a trip to the Hollywood Farmer's Market at the end of the day. Would love to hear from anyone else doing some preserving. My goal is to preserve some kind of seasonal produce every weekend.
Would love to share tips and pointers to what's seasonal and local in and around L.A. these days and how to put that seasonal/local produce up.
