It's been a game changer for us!

 
I joined The Preserver's Kitchen subscription with the aim of beginning to preserve, as it is a skill I have wanted to learn for a long time but never got around to. Kylie makes it so easy to start, which is the hardest thing. She is great at keeping in touch and encouraging your efforts and I am now addicted. Cannot wait to see what comes next. Thanks Kylie.

Does this sound like you?

Feeling overwhelmed

You don't know where to start, feel overwhelmed with the vast amount of information available and don't know which information to trust.

Lacking confidence

You're worried about getting it wrong, wasting produce on something that nobody will eat or, worse still, what if it's unsafe! Do you have a pressure canner still in its box?

Feeling time-poor

Your heart is in it but you never quite get around to making the preserves, food ends up going to waste and you feel a bit deflated. Dinner times are hard!

Needing inspiration

You're still making the same preserves you've been making the last few years (or even decades!). Your meals feel uninspired and you're needing fresh ideas.

Desiring change

Your family's health means everything to you but modern living sees you reaching for foods you'd prefer to avoid. You want to know exactly what's in the your food.

A deep calling

You feel called to reconnect with the land and the traditional skills of your ancestors, to slow down and get back to basics. You're ready for change. It's time!

 

If you answered yes to any of these, keep reading...

It doesn't have to be hard, confusing, overwhelming or time-consuming and you don't have to do it alone!

My pantry is stocked with ready-to-heat meals!

 

I was a complete newbie to preserving. The Preserver's Kitchen Membership created by Kylie has been easy to follow, and enjoyable to progress through. Now I have a pantry stocked with ready to heat meats/meals, chutneys galore and various jams and vegetables. Plenty of videos to watch, and these helped me gain confidence to use a variety of preserving methods. Even now, I dip in and out depending on what I'm creating. I highly recommend this well structured course which is suitable for a beginner or a seasoned preserver.

Preserve food & change your life!

 

Making the small decision to preserve your own food, stock up your pantry and get back-to-basics will change your life, your health and your pocket, for the better. It's time for that change!

Your "convenience food" will be your nutritious home preserved meals which you'll prepare for your family quicker than it takes to order and collect takeaways - you will gain time.

There will be no need to read food labels and check what additives have been added - you'll know exactly what's in your food.

Your beautiful, well stocked pantry will not only be a thing of beauty, it will provide you with the most delicious condiments, meal ingredients and seasonings - it'll be easy gourmet, everyday in your home.

Your security will be in the stocked pantry you've created from more economical, in-season food and bulk purchases - you will have a buffer against rising food costs.

 With these skills, you'll feel a strong connection to your ancestors and be able to pass these on to your children - imagine the memories being made in your kitchen!

You'll feel confident and supported and be eating some of the best food of your life!

And the best bit is, this will be made easy for you.

I'm now pressure canning and I'm hooked!

 

"The Preservers Kitchen Membership has been so helpful in building my confidence in all methods of preserving. We have a big family and live on a lifestyle property with extensive gardens and I would love to get to the point where we are making the most of what we are able to grow to use throughout the year. Through the membership I've built confidence and knowledge in overflow method and waterbathing and after one of the live sessions was even brave enough to get my pressure canner out of the box it had been sitting in for almost a year! Now I'm hooked!

The supportive online community has been a great place to ask questions and Kylie's expertise and clear instructions makes the process of preserving in a variety of methods so much easier.

 
Hayley S - New Zealand

No food is going to waste at our place! 

 
"I was wanting to learn more about preserving fresh produce and improve my preserving techniques, and then I found Patch to Pantry! Everything I needed in one spot: advice, support, inspiration and guidance. Learning recipes and ideas that help decrease our preservative and sugar intake is just the icing on the cake, and I love that no food is going to waste at our place. Kylie's step by step instructions are brilliant and I love being part of the supportive community too."
 
Kate Burnham - Auckland, New Zealand

As an experienced preserver, I've learnt lots!

 
"I have really enjoyed being part of The Preserver's Kitchen Membership. I have been preserving for about 5 years and even with having experience in preserving, I have learnt lots!!!
I am a visual learner and I really enjoy the videos included in the modules and I enjoy watching back the live sessions.
The platforms (Kajabi and Circle) are really easy to navigate and the interaction in the community group is beyond valuable."

The community is so inspiring!

 

I have learnt so much since I joined The Preserver's Kitchen. I have been making jams and preserving fruit for 30 years, but Kylie has given me the confidence to try different things like salsa, sauces, relishes and pickles. I have dusted off my dehydrator, and begun using it again with the help of Kylie's clearly-written lessons. I have bought a pressure canner and now have the confidence to preserve low-acid vegetables, meat and ready-to-eat meals. Kylie is a gifted teacher, and she clearly explains the "why" as well as the "how" of preserving food. I have also been encouraged by other members of the Community. It is great to be able to talk with other like-minded people about our preserving journey, and their encouragement and enthusiasm is so inspiring.

Hi, I'm Kylie!

I'm a wife, mother, small business owner, ex-academic, gardener (vegetables and herbs of course) and foodie. I live on a quarter-acre section in Gisborne, New Zealand.

I’ve spent a large part of my career working with food - teaching and research as an academic in food engineering, working within the food industry and now teaching people how to preserve food. 

I love everything about preserving my own food - the science involved in creating shelf stable food, creating new recipes, the intentional time taken to prepare them, the joy of full shelves, the challenges of something not working to plan... all of it. 

I started preserving my own food because I wanted to provide healthy food for my family that wasn’t loaded with sugar and was free from unnecessary additives. Working towards this simple goal encouraged me to slow down, get back to basics, reconnect with our food supply and grow some of our own food... it's a journey and I’m loving every minute of it!

As the world has changed over the last few years, this skillset has provided my family with a lot of security and given us a buffer as food prices have inflated. But the biggest benefit has been the ease with which we can now prepare our family meals using home preserves - time-saving homemade meals that are always healthy, always delicious. I would love this for you too!

Our membership doors are currently closed and I encourage you to add your name to our waitlist so you can start your preserving journey with our intake which is coming soon!

x Kylie
