CAMDEN, Maine — Ana Antaki of Montville will present “Preserving the Harvest with Dehydration” at 7 p.m. Jan. 31, at Camden Public Library as part of the library’s History Month series. Antaki said in a press release that she aspires to “live gently on the land, and grow a garden and an orchard to fill our dietary needs. In that vein we learned not just how to grow our food, but equally as important, how to preserve it. Dissatisfaction with conventional canning and preservation techniques led us to explore ancient methods of successful food preservation.” Her research led to the ancient techniques of dehydration and fermentation.
