Welcome to the canning season here at Growing a Greener World!
Since January, we have been traveling the country (and the world) filming special people and places who are making a difference and we can’t wait to share more of their stories with you!
While filming, I have also enjoyed visiting some of lush gardens and glorious farms brimming with edibles just waiting to be preserved. When the cameras were focused on our guests, it was all I could do to keep from packing my pockets, purse and suitcase with all that produce so that I could share it with you here in a jar! But I held back… instead I let that produce inspire me to can when I got home, and I will be sharing those recipes here throughout the season.
Besides the usual canning and preserving information, this year we will also have some Canning Videos for you! Sometimes, it really helps to see a recipe done visually and since canning is a new technique to many people, we thought that would be helpful. The clip here is from episode 204 on City Homesteading and it covers the basics of what you need in the way of equipment. For more information, visit some of my other blog posts. I cover everything from Canning Tomatoes and Apple Pie Filling to The Dangers of BPA in Canning Lids.
If you are a newbie, I suggest you start with Water Bath Basics 101, the companion post for the video clip above. Together, they give you all the basics you need to get started.
So as my own garden is brimming and the local farmer’s markets are packed with produce, I’m ready to capture those flavors of summer in jar!
Come on! Let’s do this! Who’s with me?
