    This is great Shari! I’m always looking for great ways to make my produce last longer. It’s always bought with the intention of being used up quickly but far too often it ends up sitting there in the rotter (that’s what I call the drawer in the fridge that has the word crisper on it.) Thanks for sharing. Going to make sure to pin these now so I have them handy.

    Shari, YOU are the guru of preserving for sure! Being thrifty and frugal is as important with food as it is in a budget. I appreciate so much your post and all the effort you took to put it together. What a treasure this is. Thank you. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    I love your ideas for preserving food. I have tried the herbs in the ice which works great. I need to try to sun dry my tomatoes. We always have plenty.
    Thanks for sharing!

    This is a great list, Shari. I especially love the tip for storing in glass jars and wish I had known this a long time ago. I also love your herb preservation post and am sharing it on my FB page today. Great post – pinning and sharing this one on Twitter.

      Thanks Janine. I really dislike throwing away good food because I didn’t stay on top of it. This helps my produce fresh much longer. Thanks for stopping by.
