Here's the idea: When you visit the farmers' market for fresh tomatoes, pick up a few extra and preserve them for future use in your kitchen. It's efficient, because you've got foods that are canned, you've kept your dollars local through the winter and away from multinational irresponsible corporate food conglomerates always a good thing, she says. You have lowered your carbon footprint, the food you're putting in your children's bellies is more nutritional, and it's a time-saver, because if you're preparing the components of a meal, by the time you get to cooking your dinner, you've got the stuff done three months before.
