I grew up with the sound of PING! My grandma canned and so did my mom. They always had a garden and fruit trees and canned everything! End of the year harvest was no problem because they would just throw all of what was left into a big pot and make vegetable soup and then can that! The sound of Ping! is the sound of the jars sealing, a sound I associate with my childhood.
As I grew to adulthood, I shrugged off those ideals. Spending hours slaving over a hot stove or canner? For what purpose? I could buy what I needed without all of the work. But in the past few years, I've realized I want food for my family that is free of preservatives and sprays and harmful pesticides. I want to share with my daughter what my family let me learn. Of course I never got to do the canning but I sure peeled and prepped alot of vegetables!
Simply Canning takes the hassle out of canning and makes it easy. The difference between different acidic foods when you can is discussed as well as the difference between a warm water bath and actually using a canner. Sharon also lays it out in easy to understand terms about the equipment you need to safely can.
If you're looking for a good way to utilize your produce later or want to eat healthier, give canning a try. It really is a lost art and Sharon makes it so easy to understand and follow in this canning guide, Simply Canning, which is also available in a six week course.
