Above: Tres Estrellas’ morning’s harvest of greens is washed in the outdoor farm kitchen before being packed and delivered to Rancho La Puerta’s main kitchen.

Every vegetable or fruit gardener has faced the dilemma of too much, all at once, much more than they can eat fresh. The issue becomes, how to preserve that harvest and enjoy it throughout the year.

On this episode, we make jam from tomatoes, preserve home grown lemons the Moroccan way, pickle cucumbers, beets, fennel, and onions, make kimchi from cabbages, smoke peppers, and so much more.

We'll show you a panoply of preservation, from our kitchens to yours.

About The Series:

A GROWING PASSION is a lifestyle program that explores San Diego County’s agriculture and horticulture activities as an expression of this growing earth-friendly movement.

From backyard food production to major horticultural growers, from low water landscapes to sustainable practices around the home and in the garden, we tell stories about the natural and man-made landscapes that shape the social, cultural, environmental and economic interests of our community.

We celebrate how San Diego grows. The series is hosted by Nan Sterman.
