The choices available in stores and local farm shops is simply staggering. Whether you like the tartness of a blackberry or the sweetness of a cherry, wonderful flavors are never hard to find.
Food processing is any method used to turn fresh foods into food products. Food processing includes traditional heat treatment, fermentation, pickling, smoking, drying, curing and modern methods pasteurisation, ultra-heat treatment, high pressure processing, or modified atmosphere packaging. Some of the common methods are described below:.

Many other vegetables may be dried, but the quality of the end product may not be as good as those listed. Tomatoes, for example, tend to absorb moisture easily, which can lead to color and flavor changes. Prepare vegetables for preservation immediately after picking to prevent color, flavor, texture, sugar content and nutrient changes. Sort and discard any food with decay, bruises or mold.
Thoroughly rinse vegetables with running water, using a produce brush if necessary, then drain the vegetables well. The higher the water content, the larger the slice size should be. Small slices of high-moisture foods would nearly disappear when all the moisture has evaporated. To preserve quality and color, blanch prepared vegetables in boiling water or a citric acid solution for the times listed in Table 1. Blanching is a heating process that destroys enzymes, which can cause color and flavor issues.
Water blanching achieves a more even heat penetration than steam blanching or microwave blanching. Citric acid acts as an anti-darkening and anti-microbial agent. Citric acid helps prevent discoloration and acts as an anti-microbial agent. Drying is not a precise method of food preservation, and the amount of drying time will vary depending on the equipment, moisture content of the vegetables and the humidity in the air. Spray a cookie sheet or similar flat tray with vegetable spray, or line the tray with plastic wrap or parchment paper and spray with vegetable spray.
To test your oven, set it to the lowest setting. Place an oven-safe thermometer on the rack where food will be placed. Leave the oven door open 2 to 6 inches. Place a fan near the open door to circulate air. Check the temperature. If your oven can maintain a low enough temperature to F , it may be used for food dehydration. Racks should be 2 inches apart, with at least 3 inches of clearance from the top or bottom to the rack.
See Table 1 for approximate drying times. Note: Oven drying is not a safe procedure to follow if young children are present. Allow vegetables to cool prior to testing for dryness.
Pack cooled dried vegetables in small amounts in dry glass jars preferably with dark glass or in moisture- and vapor-proof freezer containers, boxes or bags. Metal cans may be used if food is placed in a freezer bag first. Properly stored, dried vegetables keep well for six to 12 months. Discard all foods that develop off-odors or flavors or show signs of mold.
Dried vegetables can be used in soups, dips, stews and sauces. When reconstituted, 1 cup of dried vegetables becomes 2 cups. When reconstituting leafy greens kale, spinach , cover the dried vegetables with hot water and simmer to desired tenderness. When reconstituting root or seed vegetables beans, corn, carrots , cover with cold water and soak for about an hour, then simmer until tender and use as desired.

Kendall, P. DiPersio and J. Drying Vegetables. Colorado State University Extension. Publications Accessibility. Drying is a long-standing, fairly easy method of food preservation. Whenever you preserve foods, choose the best-quality fruits and vegetables. As with other food preservation methods, drying does not improve food quality. Proper and successful drying produces safe food with good flavor, texture, color and nutritional properties.
Preparing Vegetables for Dehydration Prepare vegetables for preservation immediately after picking to prevent color, flavor, texture, sugar content and nutrient changes. Fill a large kettle one-half to two-thirds full of water. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Place the vegetables in a wire basket, colander or mesh bag. You can blanch up to 1 quart of vegetables at a time. Submerge the vegetables in the boiling water, making sure the water covers the vegetables. As soon as the water reboils, start timing.
Adjust the heat to ensure continuous boiling. Heat according to the time listed in Table 1. Submerge the container with the vegetables in cold water for the same amount of time as the blanching time. Drain the vegetables on paper towels. Drying Vegetables Drying is not a precise method of food preservation, and the amount of drying time will vary depending on the equipment, moisture content of the vegetables and the humidity in the air. Testing for Dryness Allow vegetables to cool prior to testing for dryness.
Packaging and Storing Pack cooled dried vegetables in small amounts in dry glass jars preferably with dark glass or in moisture- and vapor-proof freezer containers, boxes or bags. Using Dried Vegetables Dried vegetables can be used in soups, dips, stews and sauces. Reviewed November Filed under: food , food-preparation.

3. FOOD PRESERVATION AND PROCESSING
Fruit and vegetables are an important supplement to the human diet ass they provide the essential minerals and vitamins and fibre required for maintaining health. Most of fruits and vegetables are seasonal crops and perishable in nature. In a good season there may be a local glut, particularly of fruit, but because of insufficient transport facilities, lack of good roads and poor availability of packing materials, the surplus cannot be taken quickly enough to the natural markets in urban areas. Food , Processing , Preservation , Food preservation and processing , Food preservation. Link to this page:. Thus the cultivators do not get a good price for their produce because of the glut and some of it is spoiled resulting in complete loss. Two approaches are possible for solving this problem.
There's never been a better time to learn how to safely preserve food at home. Home food preservation helps you stock up and save money, whether you're growing your own food or buying in bulk.
