Most people don’t use root cellars anymore. Even in my area where people live a simpler life and grow large gardens full of food, root cellars aren’t as utilized as one might think.
On a national scale, however, root cellars are coming back en vogue.
With the growing popularity of modern homesteading, people desire more and more to grow their own food. Unfortunately, many are unable to grow year-round, and must find a way to preserve their homegrown goodness if they want to enjoy it during colder months.
People often begin by freezing more of their own foods. When freezer space becomes an issue, they start dehydrating produce.
Getting more serious, they learn to water bath fruits and tomatoes, and then move on to pressure canning.
There is, however, a much quicker and easier way to preserve many foods.
