A documentation of my preservation and preparation of local foods as I work through the seasons. This will serve as a reference tool for me in the future and as a sharing guide for family and friends...and anyone else interested. Hopefully, I can offer some useful methods, tips and recipes to share with everyone--be they novice or pro--and encourage them to join me in the exciting world of preserving and cooking with local foods.

If you have never tried dehydrating grapes, you are in for a real treat. You will never go back to store-bought raisins. I just rinse them and toss them on the dehydrator tray. It takes from 1-2 days, but it's worth the wait.
Red and black varieties work best--I buy organic.
These are the sweetest, juiciest raisins you'll ever eat!
