One thing I am trying to learn more about is traditional food storage. I have some experience with canning, freezing and drying, but I know that if our lives depended upon my skills, we'd be in serious trouble. Therefore, I want to learn all that I can about food storage. This week, I've been drying our Greek Oregano. We don't use a lot of oregano, and our plant is very prolific with its growth, so we have lots extra. Here is some of the oregano drying inside. Once it is completely dry, it will be stored in a half-pint mason jar. Do you do any food preservation and storage? I'd love to hear about what you do. Please share links if you've posted about your efforts at food preservation. In addition to a weekly garden update, I will try to post a weekly food storage update. That might keep me accountable. If I think someone is expecting an update, maybe I won't put off preserving our garden produce. :o) It might work.
