Lots Of Options For Overflowing Garden Harvests

Spring garden harvests are coming in now, and if you’ve got more vegetables than you were expecting, you could can them… or you could donate them.

UW Extension Food safety specialist Barbara Ingham says plenty of food pantries could use those veggies.

“They really crave fresh produce. And so if you have someone who you know, or you want to know will really enjoy the fruits of your gardening labor, it likely will be individuals who are most in need. And those are people visiting food pantries.”

If you’re looking for good ways to preserve those veggies outside of donations, the Extension has a number of safe canning recipes online at Extension dot W I S C dot E D U.
