Preserving Fruits and Vegetables for Winter

Start stocking your pantry for winter with these old world recipes for preserving the fall harvest.


| September/October 2016


When our kitchens are stuffed with end-of-season produce and we sense cold weather coming, it’s the right time to try simple food preservation techniques. Our forbears used these methods to provide themselves with nutrients and variety throughout the winter, and we can do the same to ensure we get to eat homegrown produce even if the garden is covered in snow. These recipes are easy and adaptable, and each recipe features a different preserving technique.

Most modern American preservation recipes involve canning or freezing, but there are old-fashioned methods of preservation that are less costly and more energy-efficient. The following recipes are excerpted from Keeping Food Fresh: Old World Techniques and Recipes by The Gardeners and Farmers of Terra Vivante, an ecological research and education center in Southeast France. Their collection of recipes has been translated into English to help modern American kitchen gardeners become familiar with these ancient preservation techniques.
