'Tis the Season for Home Canning

Make this the year you finally master home canning.

| September 2013

  • You can savor the taste of your garden far into the next season when you learn to master home canning.

Canning fervor is officially in the air – and for good reason. As the bright days of summer slowly fade into the chill of fall, time for preserving the harvest is of the essence. Sure, some produce can successfully be frozen or even dried, but canning allows you to expand the possibilities while also making some recipes taste even better. If you’ve always been a little timid about taking the plunge and trying your hand at canning, let us walk you through the process. Our “How to Can” section has most everything you need to know to get started, and you’ll find more than enough recipes to give you serious variety all winter long. We’ve even thrown in some good old-fashioned canning nostalgia, so every angle is officially covered. Enjoy!
