The project that my family chose to work on this month is food preservation.  There are a lot of methods and subtopics when it comes to “food preservation”.  Some of the methods for food preservation include:

  • canning,
  • pickling,
  • smoking,
  • dehydrating,
  • salting;
  • and more.

Earlier this month I took the wild blackberries that we picked and was able to make blackberry jam.  You can read how I did this with detailed instructions here: Making Blackberry Jam.
