DailyDirt: Preserving Food For Posterity

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Modern civilization wouldn't be where it is today without the means to store food for long periods of time. Before refrigerators, food spoilage was a daily concern for just about everyone. Now, we can keep leftovers in a fridge for far too long -- and forget about it until some really furry mold is obviously thriving. Here are just a few links on keeping food from going bad. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    I personally wouldn't use them for meat products, but properly designed solar food dehydrators can get nice and hot, do not require electric fans for air movement, and can be a lot cheaper than the countertop version used in the article linked above.

    Lots of links at:

    For an article reporting on some design tests performed at Appalachian State University see:
