  • Visitors – All the vegetables preserved were grown in our garden and put up the same or next day after they were picked. These notes do not provide all the steps we took to prepare the veggies for preservation.
  • The squash and zucchini were cut into 3/4″ thick coins, both sides dried with paper towels, and vac-packed in quart bags.
  • The whole kernel corn was placed into quart zip locks, air squeezed out by hand and frozen.
