Sauerkraut is really simple to make, is a brilliant way of preserving cabbage and other vegetables, and allows us to eat living food all year round. It tastes great on its own, and it’s amazing to use in salads. The more vegetables you add, the wider the variety of beneficial micro flora in your finished sauerkraut, as the process uses the micro-floras that reside on the skins of the vegetables.

Pesto is so quick and easy to make, you can use a wide variety of herbs and any nuts or seeds you have around. For a 'activated' pesto you can soak the seeds overnight to deactivate the enzyme inhibitors in the seeds. We love using sorrel and pumpkin seeds but it's totally up to you!
Apple sauce is a good way to use up and store any surplus apples at the end of the year. If you use the canning method it will keep for a year!
Drying makes good use of excess or split tomatoes, and results in a delicious concentrated and sweet tomato. Most of the time it's not hot enough in Britain to sun dry tomatoes, but in a polytunnel on a hot day they can be left, covered with a cheesecloth or muslin to dry all day, making sure that they are brought indoors at night time.
