If you have a garden and its abundance cannot be eaten before it spoils then canning is a great option for long-term storage.
I had the opportunity to learn canning from my sweet friend Donna. I didn’t even own a canner at the time so she allow me to come can pinto beans at her house. We drank kombucha and had a wonderful chat while she taught me the ins and outs of pressure canning.
I planned my summer garden with canning in mind. I planted a lot of green beans and I hope to have more than enough left for canning. I dream of digging out my sweet potatoes (which should be ready for a November harvest) and opening cans of my green beans as part of our Thanksgiving meal. Homesteader dreams…
I have my own pressure canner now and my own copy of the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. But today I am excited to give YOU the opportunity to have your own as well!
