Oh how our gardens grow!
So much so that we can't process all that food without spending entire days-after-days running the canner, dehydrator, smoker, etc. Even then, it's coming in faster than we can process and we're losing a lot of it.
I need a faster, easier method of preserving lots of food. It's your typical garden veggies type of produce.
Perhaps my question is not so much about method but workflow? Does anyone have a "food shop" that gets cranked up when the garden produce starts coming in?
I have an entire room I can devote to this, and some very large spaces outdoors. Any equipment used outdoors would have to stay outdoors for many days/weeks until the season winds down.
I don't know quite what I am asking? I know what I want: to efficiently preserve all that garden produce. But geez, we can only run 2 canner loads a day. We easily need to run the equivalent of 20 canner loads a day for several days/ couple of weeks at a time. Dehydrators? I'm thinking of building a humongous one for outdoors use and run it off an extension cord.
What to do? Youtube videos? Personal pages showing what others have done?
If there is no readily available solution, then let's troubleshoot/dialogue on this. A home preservation room. In springtime it would be a sprouting/transplant room!
