Two friends gifted me apples from their trees in November. All knurled and pitted with worm holes, proof of organic. My juice extractor did not mind, so I combined the juice and froze them in containers over the winter. What a treat today when I removed them from stasis and gulped them, sipped them, swished them as if I were a like a wine connesieurre.

I save vegetable juice the same way and use it as my vegetable soup base. Wish I had a stand alone freezer. What about you? Do you freeze or can, jar?

I juice oranges, have never canned or jarred anything, I think it's because I've always been a City girl.

She canned all sorts of things. It's a lost art.

I like dehydrating to preserve. Takes a little more time, but less effort, and in the end you get an intense flavor burst from your bounty.

I buy a lot of fruit so I end up freezing quite a bit of it for later consumption. Like you Pluto, I too dehydrate things. Actually, I do a lot of fruit leathers with over ripe bananas.

To this day, I have never canned or jarred anything, but would really like to try.

I love gardening and I think that preserving would come in handy for harvest time. Too bad I don't have neither the time nor the amount of space for gardening right now.
