Never Waste Another Tomato
You work long hours in the garden, pruning and picking at your plants in the sun and in the rain. You wrestle with countless pests, from white flies and aphids to squirrels and gophers. You stick to your schedule and make sure that you give your plants all of the water and fertilizer they need to produce big juicy fruits. And then the moment of truth comes when you sink your teeth into the sweetest apple, the juiciest grape, or the most mouthwatering tomato that you’ve ever tasted. Success!
The only downside is that many of the plants we grow for food yield their fruit all at once, in one big harvest that comes only once a year. You end up with a short abundance. You eat as much as you can, and you happily trade or gift some of the harvest. But all too often, some of your bounty does not get consumed in time. It spoils on the counter top, in the pantry, or in the refrigerator.
You work too hard for this healthy, nutritious, homegrown food to let it go to waste. And this is why preservation is one of the most valuable skills that any gardener or farmer can learn.
