Home Canning

Home canning is one of my favorite ways to preserve the garden harvest.  Since I don't have a root cellar (yet), most everything that would go into cold storage can be home canned, however, it doesn't end there. Every year berries are turned to jam, harder fruits are preserved for winter desserts, and vegetables and meats are canned for mealtimes.  In addition, some prepared foods like pasta sauce, chili, and various hearty soups and stews are put up in the pantry.

Home canning can be divided into three skill levels...Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced.  Here, along with a quick guide to getting set up, I'll go over how you can get started in home canning.
