Try Canning!

Much like vinyl records, handlebar mustaches and the tambourine, canning has made its return to the hobby list of young people. Canning, pickling, and preserving fruits and veggies is one of the most cost effective and delicious ways to get the most out of your harvest. This can be especially important if you have fruit on your property that will not survive the winter.
