Garden canning is one of the sweet benefits of homesteading. Growing in abundance during your best season and then being about to store the extra away by canning it; you gotta love that! Canning is one of those vintage skills that man of us didn’t learn growing up but it is never too late to start. There is something special about looking at your rows of beautiful jars; knowing you grew and preserved those yourself.
I hope that this latest giveaway will help you on your canning and self-sufficiency adventures!
Garden Canning Giveaway
A wonderful group of blogging friends have joined me for this awesome giveaway and ONE lucky winner is going to get ALL the prizes!
Not only is garden canning a great way to preserve the abundance; it is a great way to prepare for the unexpected! You don’t have to be a prepper to know that having some food storage is a good idea.

Pressure Canning – low-acid foods require processing at 240°F. This ensures a safe food product, free of bacteria and other food born illnesses that can thrive in low-acid food. Low-acid foods are going to be your meats, beans and most vegetable or any food with pH value higher than 4.6.
Water Bath Canning – high-acid foods like most fruits, jellies, jams and properly pickled veggies will be canned using the water bath method.
The winner will be all set for garden canning with a pressure canner for low-acid foods and vegetable AND a water bath canner for higher acidic foods. All you’ll really need to add in is Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving for recipes and guidance along the way. I also recommend you pick up the dvd At Home Canning For Beginners and Beyond!
