Disclaimer: While I consider this to be a good start for finding information on preserving foods, one should not consider it an exhaustive list. Preservation methods in these websites do not guarantee food safety or lack of failure. There are many ways to preserve food and many experts. Always use recipes from tested and knowledgable sources and follow directions.
