1. As a single person, the greens go bad before I eat them all. How do you store them? - Jackie
When I grow greens it is very quickly I have more then I can eat before they go bad. I use a dehydrator and make dried greens and then powder them for storage.
A dehydrator is worth its investment as it saves money to avoid food waste.
In the fridge I wrap the greens in a paper towel. The produce bags are now made with material to help keep greens longer. Yet, I still wrap them in paper towels and place in the drawer.

2. Thank you for this great video. I feel that we would have seen the color difference better in a clear vessel. Is storing the oil in the refrigerator recommended or not? - Dan
Placing olive oil in the fridge causes the oil to form crystals - and we see this as hardening.
It is not necessary.
Place olive oil in a cool - consistent temperature - and dark place.
If you want to protect it once it is open - find a high quality vitamin E supplement gel and puncture the gel cap and place the vitamin e gel cap into the bottle. The vitamin e will protect against free radical damage in the oil.

3. I've been trying to find out if I properly dehydrate hamburger, chicken etc. Can I vacuum seal it and put it in a mylar bag for 'long term storage.' Can you help me with that? Freeze-dried meat is way too expensive. Thanks. - tina

I totally agree - freeze dried is very expensive. So far, I have dehydrated meats ground up and also poultry cut into chunks and dried. They can be sealed in a mason jar with an oxygen absorber or vacuum sealed. Once they are vacuum sealed they can be put in a place away from fluctuating temperatures or in a mylar bag.

These will store for 10 years if done correctly.

For meat I have also been practicing with making jerky. In the past this has never been a favorite since I don’t like overly salty foods or tough to chew.
I learned how to make the meat less salty and cut across the grain to avoid the tiring of my jaws chewing.

I do vacuum seal and then freeze.
