Welcome to the forum although I must say it has been very quiet in here these past few months or more. Hopefully you will have had a good look around the site and found the list of basic information.
What type of preserving are you interested in - dried, pickled, jams, whole fruit, smoked, etc?
Feel free to ask questions and hopefully someone will chime in and have an answer for you although please be patient when waiting for a reply. I used to pop in for a look see at what was going on every day however life got in the way and I have been largely absent however I will en devour to look in more often.
Love hearing about what people have been up to and so again, welcome and happy preserving in the future.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
