Hi Friends! Welcome back to the blog!
A great benefit to eating local and seasonal is that produce does not have to travel very far to reach your family’s table! Therefore food is at it’s peak freshness and the flavors are rich and nutrients at their most potent.
You may wonder, “How do I enjoy local and seasonal produce when it’s off-season?”
Great question! There are few ways to preserve produce. One of my favorites is with a food dehydrator. Using a food dehydrator takes a little planning and thought, but is well worth it. Freezing fruit to use for smoothies or veggies for soups or sauces is another great idea!
In my recent article for The Inspired Home I share more about dehydrating food and also a simple recipe for Eggplant Jerky!
