The preservation efforts continue here on the urban homestead. Like our pioneer predecessors would say “make hay while the sun shines.” It’s preservation time!
More scrumptious strawberries

A peek inside the primary kitchen “food” cabinets here on the urban homestead, showing a weeks worth of preservation.
Cabinet contents: home preserved canned goods and “staple essentials” like organic sugar, flour, salt, vinegar, oil and pasta. These three cabinets are the primary food storage cabinets in the urban homestead kitchen (besides the fridge/freezer which you can see the insides of here) – yep that’s it folks! It’s all about basic essentials, free of too many pre-packaged goods.
Care to “say ahhh” and shout out your pantry, fridge, food cabinet contents? More homegrow/local, less store bought the better!
