Debbie Meyer Green Bags. I love these! They extend the life of your produce and can be reused and reused! I often cannot process my produce upon picking and this helps me a ton!
I recommend going with the Foodsaver brand they are well known and stand behind their product. You can buy pricey ones with a roll holder built in with a cutter and they come with a bunch of accessories. I recommend getting a more basic one like I have and getting the accessories you need. This is the one I have it comes with the hose I showed you.
The accessories I share with you are the jar sealer:
And I don’t have this but worth mentioning for wine drinkers you can seal up your bottles with the Foodsaver!!! Wine Bottle Stoppers!
The marinator that takes hours out of the process:
Dehydration is next!
The key to picking a good dehydrator is making sure the heating element is in the back or the top of the unit so the juices so not drip into it. The one I have has a temperature so you can adjust depending on what you are drying. It does not have a timer but that doesn’t bother me at all. It comes with 4 trays then you can add more on. I have 8 trays total. It is the Nesco Snackmaster Express FD-60
A set of two trays runs $12.99 which isn’t too bad.
And the dehydrator comes with one fruit leather tray so if you want more you can buy them $6.99 for two
I use Kosher salt and half gallon jars for making sauerkraut. They are about $20 on Amazon.
One of my students recommended using these glass flower frogs for a weight instead of a rock. They fit nicely in a wide mouth mason jar.
And lastly my Grandma’s refrigerator pickles recipe! I use two half gallon jars instead of one gallon one.
