Preserved food in preserving jars reminds us of the time of our grandparents. But do you know all the secrets of preserving? MyGlass.ch describes the advantages of this traditional method and why it is so important to always have a few jars.
Why are foods preserved in preserving jars?
1. To enjoy seasonal products
Local and seasonal consumption allows us to respect the cycle of nature and the planet. Summer is the season when you will find the greatest variety of fruit and vegetables in the garden or at the stalls of the village market. The solution to enjoy them all year round? Put the food in preserving jars and preserve it!
2. To preserve taste and aromas
A conversation when the products are at their freshest will allow you to capture all their flavours. Unlike other preservation methods, the homemade version preserves the taste, texture and aromas of all your foods and preparations.
3. For a healthy nutrition
The production of preserves allows us to determine what we put into our preserving jars and therefore what we consume. No traces of preservatives or other additives, only sterilisation guarantees preservation. So your preparations are 100% natural and can reflect your lifestyle.
4. To avoid waste
Food in preserving jars is an excellent alternative to reduce food waste. Fruit and vegetables that spoil or the surplus from your garden is processed into delicious preserves. So no more excuses to throw them away! Thanks to preserving jars you have the power to preserve everything nature has to offer for a long time.
5. For sharing
Taking care of the garden, harvesting fruit or strolling around the market can be a lot of fun for two. Making preserves or jam is also a good way to share a convivial moment. It is an opportunity to share your know-how with your friends and family and let them discover your recipes.
6. To give free rein to your creativity
To produce canned food means to express oneself and to let one's creativity run free. By putting together combinations of ingredients, flavours and colours, you can reveal your personality and create recipes that are 100% yours. Made with love, of course!
7. Because it is practical
Guests who show up at the last minute, a spontaneous picnic or just don't feel like cooking tonight? All you have to do is open the cupboard, choose a preserving jar, warm up the preserving jar and you're ready to eat. The preserving jars are also very handy and do not use any energy, such as food in a refrigerator or freezer. This can also be very practical during a power failure.
8. Because glass preserving jars are the best containers
Natural, robust, waterproof and 100% recyclable glass is the healthiest of all containers and also completely tasteless.
