Freezing: Freezing is the quick and easy way to save your summer fruits and veggies. Wellness magazine SparkPeople suggests just washing and drying your produce before laying it out on a baking tray in a single layer. If you are freezing a larger fruit - like a peach - core, skin, and slice it into smaller bits before putting it on the tray. Stick the tray in the freezer for several hours. When you take it out, your produce pieces should be separately frozen, which will make less difficult to break them apart after they have been sitting in freezer bags for a couple of weeks!
Canning: For the canning method, clean all canning jars and lids. Clean, peel, seed, and cut the fruit or vegetable before placing it in the jar along with the salt, sugar, or other spice content specified by the recipe you are following. Cap the jar with the lid and ring before placing it a large pot. Add enough boiling water to reach an inch above the top of the jar. Let everything simmer for the time listed by your recipe before carefully removing with tongs. You should be left with nicely sealed jars.
