I have been preserving our harvest for many years now, but dehydrating was one of the last skills I added to my repertoire. Even though this has been my path, there are plenty of reasons to choose dehydrating earlier in your journey.
m going to share some of the essential canning tips I had to learn before preserving confidently on my own. These are the things I either gleaned from those more experienced (and verified), learned through trial and error, or frantically looked up as I went. Canning at home doesn’t need to be scary. A little knowledge can go a long way!
