I have been a busy girl the last few months. Partly because it is canning season! I love to can. I know that sounds stupid and it is a lot of extra work. But the payoff is worthwhile. Not only do I know where my food comes from, but I know what is in it. I am able to control the amount of sugar and the amount of salt. Sure, I can buy practically the same thing on the self at the grocery store. But in my mind, there isn't even a need for comparison.
My favorite things to can are peaches and jams. I have a friend who cans a lot of meat, mainly chicken and roast beef. I swear they are some of the most tender meat I have ever tried. Interesting, right? I might have to try it.
Anyhow, here are some of my favorite canning sites.
