Canning isn’t complicated it’s just time-consuming. That’s why so many people choose now to freeze foods. However, that method takes up valuable freezer space that is better used for fresh meat.
Many fruits and vegetables lend themselves well to canning and everyone who cans has their favorites. In our family, we can tomatoes, stone fruits, apples, and pickles. The rest of the year we just eat what’s in season.
It’s important to note that there are two primary methods for canning: the water bath method, and the pressure canning method.
