FOOD STORAGE TIPS: How to preserve your food for long term storage

Whether you call it, putting food by, preserving, or canning, pennywise people know it’s a wise thing to do. If you can can, do can! Sounds like a dance!

Here are some tips to help you learn more ways to save money on food by preserving – putting by – some of your own food or food you've purchased at a Farmer's stand or market or even from the grocery store.

Building up a food storage supply whether you purchase or grow your own is satisfying in more ways than one. There isn't always a money saving, but you'll have season-fresh food of good quality and that nice feeling of satisfaction when you don't have to run out to the store at the last minute.

We've included Food Storage Tips in our Recipe Index since Food Preservation is , well, food related. Always, if in doubt, you'll find the best recipes are the tried and true (and up-to-date) ones that you can get from your local government or University Food Services.
