We often hear from homeowners who are absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of fruit coming off or their trees. While we love to share the abundance, we also want to share ideas and resources for what to do with all that food!
http://www.pickyourown.org/allaboutcanning.htm -has an extensive amount of information on everything from where to find u-pick orchards, to how to safely can, freeze, dry or otherwise store fresh produce of all kinds
http://extension.oregonstate.edu/community/food-preservation -Oregon State University Extension Service has a lot of great resources as well. They also offer the Master Food Preservers course
And of course, be sure to check out (and subscribe to!) our blog, for lots of recipe suggestions for the fruit we typically collect throughout the Rogue Valley- https://neighborhoodharvestashland.wordpress.com/blog/
