Home Food Preservation Methods

When considering food preservation methods, what do you think of? Do the terms sodium benzoate, butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene come to mind?

Probably not – but chemical preservatives like these (and around 40 others) are extremely common in many of the foods that we eat every day. A scary thought, made scarier by the fact that the use of some of these additives can pose serious health risks to humans (including cancer formation).

Erring on the side of caution and ridding your life of these chemicals just makes sense. Besides, there are plenty of ways that you can preserve your own local, additive-free food right at home!

Do you want a pantry, freezer and cellar stocked with locally-sourced, additive-free food for your family? Knowledge of these 12 home food preservation methods is all you need to get started!
