25+ Great Preserved Food Ideas

These preserved food ideas will keep you full and healthy – and last for ages!

By Lora O’Brien

In case you’ve been living under a rock and managed to miss the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus, the world is kind of going nuts. People are stockpiling everything from pasta to baked beans, and there’s a worldwide shortage of toilet paper, apparently. I queued for TWO HOURS in a virtual line up to buy food online – because my local supermarket had nothing but tumbleweed rolling about at the time.

But you know what? Many of us – myself included – would be much more chill if we just did as our ancestors did and preserved food.

Think about it – how many times have you had to throw out bananas or other fruit because you just couldn’t eat it before it went off? Have you ever tossed out veggies because you thought: “I just don’t know how I’m going to use these before they go bad’. This is nuts, people! We’ve become so used to a steady supply of food that we’ve taken the stuff for granted. And it’s time to change that.

For starters, if you already don’t know how to, it’s time to learn to cook. It’s really not rocket science; all you need are a few tools, like a hand mixer or blender, knives and some decent pots, and a recipe that’s easy to follow. So many of us today rely not only on supermarkets and ready made foods, but worse yet – services like Deliveroo to bring us hot, freshly made food. It’s such a waste of resources (packaging, petrol) when you can easily make the same dishes yourself!

Secondly, we all need to learn how to use up whatever leftover foods we have. That’s easy when you have a few good recipes for leftovers on hand, but creativity is also key.

And finally, we need to learn how to preserve foods like our great grandparents did. That means canning, pickling, dehydrating and freezing foods that are abundant now, but may not be later.

Preparation is key

It’s always wise to buy loads of dried food that lasts for ages, like rice, lentils, chickpeas, beans, popcorn, pasta and so on. If you’re making any of the preserve recipes below, of course you’ll need some jars, and for freezing, you’ll need some plastic or glass containers. For dry goods, store them in airtight jars – it’s the easiest and most eco-friendly option. But if you’re low on space, Ziplock bags will do.

Store Food Right

If you’re buying up a lot of food to use later, it’s not much use if you don’t store it properly and it all goes bad. Here are some tips to follow:

Potatoes: should be stored in a cool, dark place in a cloth or paper bag

Tomatoes: keep green tomatoes stem side down in a paper bag or in a cardboard box. Place in a cool area until they turn red. Perfectly ripe tomatoes should be kept at room temperature on the counter away from sunlight

Apples: The ideal storage temperature is 30 to 35 degrees F. with 90 to 95 percent relative humidity. If you don’t have a lot of apples, the refrigerator is a good option. For more than the fridge can handle, look for a cool, dark place that’s relatively humid, such as a cellar or garage. It’s best if the temperature stays close to freezing – but not below! Wrap each apple — preferably with the stem on — in a piece of newspaper to keep the apples separate. Use larger apples first, as these tend to be the first to soften

Onions: Whole onions and shallots should be stored in a cool, dry, dark, well-ventilated room like a pantry or cellar. Peeled onions can be stored in the fridge for 10–14 days, while sliced or cut onions can be refrigerated for 7–10 days

Drying

Drying is probably the oldest method when it comes to preserving food. Of course, it’s a lot easier today with the invention of dehydrators! The process of dehydrating involves exposing fruits, vegetables and herbs to a temperature that is high enough to remove moisture from the food, but low enough so that they don’t actually cook.

You can either buy a dehydrator, like this one, or you can use a toaster oven on a very, very low setting to get the same effect. Learn more about dehydrating food here. Most dried fruits can be kept for up to a year at 60 degrees F, while dehydrated veggies last about six months.

Freezing

I think it’s crazy that so many people empty out the frozen food section when you can easily freeze your own grub – even fresh fruits and veggies can be popped into the freezer, no problem! .Just make sure they’re super fresh when they go into the freezer and keep them frozen at 0 degrees F.

If it’s veggies that you’re freezing, then blanch and then submerge them in ice water beforehand. Afterwards, dry thoroughly with paper towels or a tea-towel. The blanching process helps the veggies to retain their colour, flavour and nutrients before freezing. Fruit will last around a year, veggies 18 months.

But you can also fill your freezer with flavourful dishes you make yourself, like soups and stews! Cook them in huge batches and freeze them in glass containers. Simply defrost the night before and reheat the next day.

Preserving/Canning

If you frequently buy tinned food – stop! It’s super cheap and easy to make your own with a few items.

First, you’ll need some jars. Sterilise your jars and lids in simmering water for a few minutes. Then, they’ll ready to be filled with things such as jam, salsa and sauces. Once your jars are loaded, pop the lid on firmly but not too tightly.

Lower the jars into a large pot of water, cover it and bring it to a boil, letting the jars process for about 10 minutes. Once done, remove the jars from the water and allow them to cool. They will have automatically vacuum sealed, as their internal temperature drops.

Enjoy canned goods within a year for maximum quality. After this time period, the quality of flavour may deplete a little bit. Need more canning tips? Click here.

Now that you’ve got the basic staples from the supermarket and the basic skills you need, let’s get on with our 25+ preserved food ideas!

25+ Ideas for Preserved Foods

1. Healthy 5 Ingredient Granola Bars

Sure, you can buy commercial granola bars that will keep for ages at home. But personally. I tend to down those whenever I’m bored. And if I’m stuck at home for whatever reason, I’m bored a lot, believe me! When you put the time and effort into making your own food, you tend to appreciate every little bite a bit more, and that’s why I love making this granola bar recipe.

With only 5 ingredients – dates, oats, nuts, maple syrup and nut butter – they’re really easy to make. If you seal these in an airtight container, they’ll last for weeks and weeks, too.

2. Homemade Applesauce

Apples store for quite awhile, and there’s plenty you can do with them: dry them, or make an apple jam, for example. But if you have a good store of applesauce on hand, it’s a wonderful supplement to many foods: enjoy a dollop on granola, in vegan yogurt, on banana bread, or just enjoy it on its own! It’s an especially important recipe if you have little kids at home.

4. Spicy Tomato Dehydrated Kale Chips

I love eating kale, but frankly, I always tend to find it wilted in the back of the fridge before I get to use it. If, like me, you have some hanging around you need to use up, then turn it into kale chips ASAP! They’re dehydrated to preserve all of their enzymes and nutrients, and you an make these in an oven or a dehydrator.

Struggling to get hold of your favourite fried snacks? Honestly, make these vegetable crisps and you’ll never look back. I am OBSESSED with dried veggie crisps!

9. Pickled Red Onions

I love anything that’s pickled! Onions, cucumbers, gherkins…there’s something about the tanginess that has me salivating and going back for more.

If you’re a fellow crunchy pickle lover like me, then you’re going to want to make this recipe right now! These New York-style pickles are crispy, crunchy and full of flavour.

11. Dehydrated Hummus

What to do when you go to the shops and your beloved hummus is all out of stock? HOW WOULD WE VEGANS SURVIVE?! Ha ha.

To bring it to life, take it out of its storage jar, mix with water and you’re good to go. It’s practically a miracle!

I literally add some spicy salsa onto anything I can. I love dipping chips in it, I love smearing it on crackers and I even use it as a topping for a jacket potatoes. This canned salsa will last up to a year, and is made with essential pantry ingredients that most of us have on hand anyway.

13. Dehydrated Cauliflower Popcorn

Cauliflower is severely underrated. My favourite way to use it is, of course, by making cauliflower BBQ wings, but a VERY close second is by dehydrating it into ‘popcorn’. Once you make this addictive snack, it will be a family favourite forever – yes, it’s that good! It stores super easily in disinfected jars, or just in a Ziplock bag.

14. Cheezy Kale Crackers

Don’t let the snack attack strike and have nothing in your cupboards to satisfy your cravings! The flavour of these cheezy kale crackers is enhanced when you dehydrate them, and it’s another great recipe to make and store in jars or Ziplock bags. Perfect with a big dollop of hummus, too!

15. Dehydrated Eggplant ‘Bacon’

It’s essential that you make and store food that you’re going to enjoy snacking on, and this dehydrated eggplant bacon is superb. You can eat it by itself as a snack, or use it in meals; break up and sprinkle in a salad or use it in sandwiches. It has a great smoky flavour and is a perfect meat-free alternative.

16. Dehydrated Risotto

This recipe will allow you to tuck into a bowl of homemade risotto any time, any place. You can choose to preserve it by dehydrating it, but frankly, it’s also super easy to simply freeze. It’s the perfect meal on a rainy day or a chilly night! Simply rehydrate in boiling water or allow it to thaw for 24 hours before heating it up and tucking in.

17. Turmeric Jalapeño Sauerkraut

Sure, making your own fermented sauerkraut may seem daunting, but it’s actually pretty foolproof. All you’ll need to do is ‘massage’ the cabbage with clean hands to work out the juices for about 5 minutes, before stirring in the other ingredients. Pour in a mix of 1 cup filtered water to 1 teaspoon salt. Cover with a coffee filter and secure with a rubber band and you’re good to ferment this for at least 10 – 14 days to allow the good bacteria to grow. It’s a great immunity booster, too!

18. Pink Lentil Soup

With food shortages here in the UK, there are lots of vulnerable people in need of assistance in getting meals. I added this jar recipe because I thought it was such a wonderful way to spread the love and help someone out during this time.

We all have old jars hanging about, so make these and gift them to people in need. All they have to do is cook the lentils in a bit of water, and add the dehydrated sachet, and they have a healthy meal ready to go.

21. Homemade Strawberry Jam

A staple in many homes – strawberry jam! Make yours from organic strawberries for sure though – did you know these berries are by far one of the most heavily sprayed with pesticides?

There are many uses for strawberry jam; use it as a topping for both pancakes and French toast, or as a scrummy filling for crepes, doughnuts and thumbprint cookies. This jam stores for up to 18 months in a dark, cool place.

22. Activated Apple Coconut Cacao Cookies

Who doesn’t love an all natural sweet from time to time? These raw cookies are naturally sweetened with apples and dates for a healthy snack that will satisfy both those chocolate and sweet tooth cravings!

23. Peanut Butter Banana Fruit Roll Ups

This is a fun way to make fruit roll-ups that will appeal to both the adults and the kids! These taste super sweet, almost like a banana chip, but with the added benefit of some protein from the peanut butter.

Get the recipe here.

24. Banana Chips

Bananas are a staple food for many of us, but they can ripen super quick and there are only so many smoothies you can stomach, am I right? This recipe is easy to make, and is heaps more affordable than the price of store-bought banana chips.

Keep them plain, or add some cinnamon or nutmeg. You can snack on these as are, or add them to some granola or trail mix, or even bake them into cookies!

25. Fruit Roll-Ups

This is one of the most essential preserved food ideas if you have kids! The best thing about making fruit rolls ups is that you can pretty much use any fruit combination you like. Strawberries, raspberries, mango, peaches, apricots, apples…and you can even use frozen fruit if that’s all you have on hand.

26. Homemade Nut Butters

One of the best things you can make to fill your belly and keep you healthy is a good nut butter. Choose any nut you like, but you can bet there will be loads of protein, vitamin E and fibre in this treat. Smear it on crackers, fruit roll ups, toast, or even on some banana bread for a delish boost of vegan protein! This recipe below, for almond butter, will keep for years when properly canned.

Non-conforming entries will be rejected and ineligible for contest prizes. Any entrant using fraudulent means to participate and/or win the contest will be disqualified. Any attempt by an entrant to undermine the legitimate operation of the context may be a violation of criminal and civil laws.
    Eluxe Magazine reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify, terminate, or suspend a contest for any reason and without prior notice. In such case, Eluxe Magazine may, as appropriate under the circumstances, select a contest winner via reasonable means consistent with the specific contest.

    Winner Selection and Notification

    The odds of winning vary from contest to contest. The winning entry or entries for a contest will be selected in compliance with the terms of the specific contest. Eluxe Magazine’s competition partners will contact contest winners by email to confirm a winning entry.

    The potential contest winner will forfeit the prize if he/she (1) does not respond to the initial notification email or return any required information within 10 business days, (2) cannot be contacted at his/her listed email address, (3) rejects the prize or the prize is returned as undeliverable, or (4) is disqualified for any reason. In the event of prize forfeiture, an alternate winner will be selected.

    Winners are solely responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes and all unspecified expenses or fees associated with prize acceptance, receipt, and use. Prizes may not be substituted or transferred by any contest winner and a winner may not receive cash redemption equal to the value of the prize in lieu of the prize. Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to substitute alternate prizes of equal or comparable value. Prizes are offered “as is” with no written, express, or implied warranty, including but not limited to, quality, condition, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose. Eluxe Magazine is not responsible for replacing prizes as a result of damage prior to, during, or after shipping or events beyond Eluxe Magazine’s control. Winners must look to the manufacturer or service provider for any potential warranties or guarantees.

    Release

    By entering a contest and, if applicable, receipt of any prize, each entrant and, as applicable, winner agrees to release and hold harmless Eluxe Magazine and its officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in a contest or any contest-related activity, or from the receipt or use or misuse of any prize, including claims or causes of action related to alleged damage to an entrant’s computer or electronic systems from downloading or using any material from Eluxe Magazine’s website, regardless of whether the material is connected to Eluxe Magazine’s website by a hyperlink text.

    Use of Collected Data

    Eluxe Magazine will collect personal data about entrants for purposes of administering contests. By entering into a contest, entrants agree to Eluxe Magazine’s collection and usage of their personal information. Eluxe Magazine does not, and will not, disclose entrants’ personal information to non-affiliated third-parties.
