Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week, we are trying both traditional and new ways to hold onto the summer flavours for a bit longer with 17 Preserving Recipes.

17 Recipes For Preserving Summer Bounty | Food Bloggers of Canada

What if it was possible to taste summer all year long? Turns out it is!

Well, maybe "all year long" is a bit of an exaggeration but it is definitely possible to preserve some of your favourite flavours for a few months if you dedicate some time to making jams, jellies, dried fruit or pickled/fermented foods.

By spending just a couple of hours in the kitchen, you'll definitely be able to make those strawberries, cherries, tomatoes, and cucumbers last at least until that time when the warmer days are just a vanishing memory and you're getting ready to embrace the end-of-the-year holidays.

Ready to try some Russian Dill Pickles? What about Pear & Pineapple Sauerkraut? Raspberry Homemade Jam? If just reading the names is making you drool, wait until you check out the recipes below. Just preserved deliciousness!
