This Agrodok is meant to be a practical manual giving a review of thesimple techniques used to preserve fruits and vegetables.In addition to information provided in the previous edition of thisAgrodok, this fourth edition covers more theoretical information onfood decay in general, its causes and dangerous effects, as well as preventive measures that can be taken. In our opinion this knowledgeis necessary if you want to start a small-scale preserving business, towhich a whole chapter is devoted in this edition.The general introduction deals with the principles of spoilage preven-tion. The various methods of preserving are then explained, and themain points of spoilage specific to the method are covered. The nextchapters deal with jam and juice making and attention is paid to dry-ing vegetables and fruit, as well as salting of vegetables. Freezing isnot discussed, since this technique needs facilities usually not avail-able in many developing countries. We have tried to describe everymethod as practically as possible, including descriptions of the re-quired materials and techniques.Finally we would like to thank some people for their contributions tothe realization of this Agrodok: Domien Bruinsma for writing chapter 8 and critically reading the different concepts, Jan Schreurs for textediting, Mamadi Jabbi for making some new illustrations and WillemWürdemann for critically reading the content of this Agrodok.Ife Fitz JamesBas Kuipers
