Moderation and Variety are the keys to good health. When eating balanced nutrition, we choose from the four main food groups. To achieve the requirements, we must also choose from the different food storage methods to maintain a stocked pantry year round. It is essential to preserve food to avoid famines.
The most convenient storage method for you may be in fresh foods as you are a frequent shopper. Someone living miles from a grocery store with no ground for a garden will have to supplement their pantry with many preserved food supplies. All natural foods are not available on the market for home canning.
When the label domestic is used for oranges, grapes, apples, and tomatoes, it means that they are eaten as sold. Tomatoes are most commonly sold for salad purposes. The fruits listed contain very little juice.
Many people cannot afford to process their foods for storage. With two people often working away from home, there is little time to take advantage of processing their foods for storage. Some people simply do not have the talent or interest in preserving food.
