Not that long ago, many people knew how to preserve food. Information about canning, freezing and drying was passed down from generation to generation. But that’s not the case today, say Susanna Meyer and Mary Clemens Meyer, co-authors of Saving the Seasons: How to Can, Freeze or Dry Almost Anything, a new book from Herald Press.
“Many younger people today want to preserve food, but don’t know how to do it,” says Susanna. “Maybe their grandmother canned, or their mother used to, but that generational knowledge hasn’t been passed down.”
