Purdue University Extension::Preserving and Storing Foods .pdf Links

Since my new job is with WIC, it involves alot of teaching mothers and their children not only about nutrition but also about basic food preparation and storage. This week, I was required to attend a state Farmer's Market meeting for WIC personnel. I had the pleasure of listening to the Purdue Extension come and speak and give a demonstration on how to freeze foods. They also gave us a handout which included all of these links. I felt like those of you interested in peak oil and subsequently interested in growing and preserving your own foods might like these handy little .pdfs that you can print out. I find them handy because growing and preserving food is all new to me. So enjoy!!!
