Preserve making is a fantastic way to reduce food waste by preserving fruit, and even vegetables, traditionally created when there was an abundance of seasonal produce which could then be used at another time of year rather than being left to rot. Methods to preserve food can include: pickling, bottling, juicing, dehydrating or even fermenting foods like kimchi and of course making jams, jellies or chutneys.
