You can can your goodies with these easy recipes. I follow the Ball Canning book for direction on what to do (mostly). I provide instructions with my life experience from using these recipes with helpful tips I’ve learned from canning. Growing up, I (sometimes) helped my mom and grandma can. Canning tomatoes and making jelly were something they both always did. And now that I’m an adult, I find that canning saves us a lot of money on things we would have to buy at the store. You can your garden and use the food all year long.
We enjoy taking the foods from our garden and canning in the Summer, so we can enjoy the fruits of our labor for the winter and maybe even longer.
We use 2 canning methods: 1. water bath and 2. pressure canner/cooker. The pressure cooker has you put the jars in water and process under presser. It takes longer as you have to wait for the canner to release pressure naturally (if you don’t the jars just leak everythin out). The water bath is processed by heating the water to a boil for a certain amount of time.
Here is hoping you find a recipe or two that you like and can can your garden goodness to enjoy throughout the year!
