Home canning basics – Part one

Canning food gives you the opportunity to keep your garden produce for later use, to save money and to know the food you put on your table is as chemical free as it can be.

Canning is easy once you have done it several times but you must always use care to make sure your end product is properly canned. Improper canning can lead to food that spoils or contains bacteria.

The following series of you tube videos will show you different types of canning and how to store you garden produce safely.

I grew up in a family that canned produce and there is nothing better in the winter than fresh produce from your garden. We also have family recipes that have been handed down from generation to generations and holidays are special with recipes from these canned vegetables and fruits.

  1. Hi!
    Well, I’m going to have to do some canning this fall. My veggies are thriving and am getting lots of tomatoes. A naughtly little squirrel in the backyard ate my beautiful eggplant. I was so proud of it. Luckily the plant is producing another fruit and I have lifted the pot up on a table. Hope that fools him.

  2. Those squirrels can cause a lot of damage. I never thought about them going after eggplants. I grew the easter egg eggplant one year for fun.

    Good luck canning. (tomatoes are my favorite to can.) Denise
