Preserve

Confidently fill your shelves and freezer with safe, healthy food by canning, dehydrating, fermenting, freeze-drying, infusing, curing, brewing, and more!

We’ll show you tutorials for canning meat using the raw-pack method, how we preserve all our excess eggs to use during winter (or how we freeze eggs for easy baking), plus we share fermented recipes including fermented cranberry sauce, fermented garden tomatoes and ginger carrots.

Root cellaring is one of the easiest and most energy-efficient ways to store your fruits and vegetables by using the earth’s natural temperatures. But what do you do if you don’t have the infrastructure to support a traditional root cellar? You get creative! 

In this episode of the Panty Chat, we're continuing our series on preservation methods with an introduction to root cellaring. We're covering all the basics as well as the alternatives for homesteaders who want to get started with root cellaring, but don’t have the dedicated space for it.

Introduction to Fermenting (Preservation 101) - Pantry Chat #67

101K views October 4th

Many people think braiding onions is the best way to store them, but the truth is, onions are heavy, and properly cured onions have dry brittle stems, meaning braiding may not be the best solution. That's why we use the old-fashioned method of STRINGING onions for long-term storage.

Watch the video as I demonstrate how to string onions. For more information check out our blog post: https://homesteadingfamily.com/how-to-store-onions

#howtostoreonions #onions #braidingonions #foodstorage

Many people think braiding onions is the best way to store them, but the truth is, onions are heavy, and properly cured onions have dry brittle stems, meaning braiding may not be the best solution. That's why we use the old-fashioned method of STRINGING onions for long-term storage.

Watch the video as I demonstrate how to string onions. For more information check out our blog post: homesteadingfamily.com/how-to-store-onions

Fermentation is a wonderful preservation method that allows you to put up a large amount of food in a very short period of time. Because we experienced a hard freeze a bit early this year, we needed to preserve a LOT of green beans all at once! 

In this video, Carolyn shares our favorite fermented pickled green bean recipe that we call "Pizza Beans". By adding ingredients like garlic, oregano, and diced tomatoes, our pickled green beans have a slightly "pizza-like" flavor that we all love!

For the full recipe, visit our blog: homesteadingfamily.com/lacto-fermented-green-beans
