If you get an over abundance of a particular fruit or vegetable do you preserve some of it for winter or just give it away?

Oh yes - mangoes and tomatoes get transformed into a delicious summer chutney. Basil gets transformed into pesto year round and we have a freezer full of passionfruit pulp which we make into cordial or curd - yum.

We get a lot of limes off our tree, so when it's fruiting with give lots away. I also made marmalade and juiced some and froze the juice and I use it in drinks through the rest of the year.
Sadly no, I only have Rosemary, and it is in abundance...so no need too.
This is one day's harvest of tomatoes from last year. We often roast them and store them in preserving jars for winter. We didn't use the last jar until October this year!
I didn't preserve anything this year. However I joined a local "Food is free" group and we swap excess fruit and vegies and one fellow made a really nice chutney from everyone's excess tomatoes and shared it around! I'm likely to have an excess of rockmelons in a month or two and I've already let the neighbours know that I will be sharing!
No. I would like to though.

I wish I had a garden to harvest! Seriously, it's a bit o a dream of mine, to turn my black thumb at least partially green. I want very much to lower my impact on the environment and I want growing my own to food to be a part of that. So once I have a garden to harvest, I will certainly be preserving some but I also know I will give away some as well. I will likely split it 50/50.
yes some real hot peppers
