On day one of the Punk Domestics trip to Italy in January, 2012, we made three kinds of preserves with Marzia Brigante: Quince jam, pear jam with aromatic spices and savor, a conserve made with apples, pears, quince, nuts and saba.
Technically a conserve, savor is a melange of quince, apple and pear, with almonds and walnuts, plus any other nuts that you like; we used hazelnuts. Recipe by Marzia Brigante from the Punk Domestics trip to Italy in January, 2012.
While many partake in canning, drying & freezing the harvest, cold storage is another DIY option. Deanna explains the two methods: indoor & outdoor, w/ step-by-step instructions for a versatile indoor solution using plastic totes or bushel baskets.
