Preserving the Harvest

Preserving Raspberries, French and Fava Beans

This table has on it my preservation equipment for preserving raspberries, French beans and fava beans.  The balance scales are hanging in the foreground for measuring the quantity of sugar with the gally-pots (or apothecary pots) and leathers underneath to store the preserved raspberries.  Several salt glazed are awaiting the strong pickling solutions for the French and fava beans.  At the very back end of the table are eggs needed for determining the quantity of salt in the pickle.
