While it's important for people to eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible each day, it can sometimes be difficult for people to consume all their produce before it goes bad.

Of all the ways that people choose to store produce for a longer period of time, freezing is probably the most common option. If fruits and vegetables are frozen right after they have been picked, then they will not lose any of their nutritional content while frozen. This makes frozen produce one of the simplest and most cost-efficient ways to preserve any kind of produce.

Another option for preserving produce that has been around for a long time is the option to can your produce. Every grocery store you visit these days is going to have canned produce available, but it's also possible to can your own produce at home. In fact, home canning and preserving has been making a strong comeback in recent years. If you have the right supplies, it turns out to be quite easy to do.

A slight variation to canning produce is to try to pickle it instead. With pickling, you'll be using a brine solution to preserve and chemically alter the produce you are storing. While most people think of pickled cucumbers as the only thing that can be pickled, the truth is that just about any produce you can imagine can be pickled.

A more unique option for preserving produce is making it into juice. While some varieties will produce more juice than others, you can generally create juice from nearly all types of fruits and vegetables. With the help of a cider press, you can get some new life and some delicious juice out of your produce.

Finally, it's possible to preserve a wide range of produce by dehydrating and drying it. Dried fruits and vegetables can be kept for longer periods of time than fresh ones, and the nutritional content will usually not be too decreased. If you have a dehydrating machine or can just leave the produce hanging in the sunshine, then you should have no problem with getting as much dried produce as you want.

With any of these techniques, it will be quite easy to preserve just about any kind of produce you might be sitting on. By prolonging the life of your fruits and vegetables, it's possible to save both time and money.
