Where can I find information on fruit & veggie serving sizes and storage?

 

Q. Do have accurate serving weights and/or sizes for fruits and veggies? I grow and raise my own food. Can I freeze or dehydrate fruits and veggies as well?

Yes – most fruits and vegetables can be dehydrated, frozen or even canned for later use. Check with your local University Extension office for information on food preservation.
