Eating well all winter long can be tough but with the right planning you can still be enjoying fall harvest right into the middle of winter.
We stock up food for winter in a variety of ways. Here's what we are still eating that we harvested or purchased this fall and stored for winter eating:
1. In the extra fridge - pears, apples, cabbage, carrots
2. In the cold room - onions, squash, garlic, potatoes
3. In the freezer - beans, snow peas, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, kale, peaches, strawberries, raspberries
4. Dehydrated Foods - cherries, plums, garlic, onions, kale, spinach, apples, herbs for spices, herbs for teas
These foods that we have stored along with the canning that I did this past summer and fall keep us well fed all winter long.
When paired with our microgreens, we eat really well most of the winter. This is especially important when trying to watch our winter food bill and keep eating nutritious foods.
It feels good to stock up our food in the fall. I use all these things to cook all winter long. I also use these stocked food items to bolster my freezers for meals for spring and summer. That way I know that during the busy season I have nutritious meals to feed my family even when I am too busy to cook much.
