For the store cupboard – preserving fruit and vegetables
Harvested more fruit than you can possibly eat? Then try preserving your fruit so you can enjoy it at a later date – it works with vegetables, too.
Of course, fruit tastes best when it is fresh. But often bushes, trees and beds produce so much that you have some left over, and it would be a shame to throw it away. The solution is to preserve your fruit and vegetables. You can do this with or without sugar, in a pan or in the oven. This was common knowledge to your grandparents, but that doesn't mean that preservation is a thing of the past.
