Spring is almost here and Summer is right around the corner!

With the warmer weather come delicious fresh veggies and fruits full of nutrients when harvested at the height of the season. If you’re like me, you have often ended up with more than you can eat before it spoils, so preserving these foods for the off-season is key.
