Whether a novice or seasoned in the art of home canning, all will benefit from this week’s show. I introduce you to three of my must-have, go-to resources I rely on for my own home canning and food preservation efforts.
Seasonal canners will benefit by refreshing themselves on techniques, concepts, and processes that form the foundation to safe home canning. Those new to home canning will find trusted places to learn and get started.
I also walk you through listener questions, something I really enjoy receiving.
