Whether you grow your own, or frequent your local Farmers Market, there is nothing like the taste of fresh, ripe produce. "Like many others, this is my favorite time of the year -- harvest time," said Laura Barr, University of Illinois Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator. "I have ‘put up' strawberry preserves, green beans, dill pickles, corn relish, tomato sauce and salsa with the fresh, abundant produce of the season." Barr is sharing samples and tips from projects like these during food preservation demonstrations with the Aurora Farmers Market this summer.
