I was thrilled when I finally discovered canning. I had been preserving using my Fowlers Vacola outfit for years, bottling fruits, but I wanted something that I could store meat and vegetables other than our freezer.
I had been reading the Above Rubies magazine and a Mennonite publication and they talked about canning their meats and vegetables. So after some internet research I found a company online in Australia that sold canners.
It has been fantastic! I started with peas, corn and beans. I have since then over the last few years moved onto meats, soups and casseroles. I have canned sweet and sour pork, chicken and corn soup and even wild rabbit (our meat ones keep dying before they are ready to eat !!!)
I feel very pleased when I go out to my pantry and look at all the jars out there and find it hard to use them because I don’t want them to run out and they look so good. I have to shake myself and say “hey, you need to use it before next season”.
I find the bottles great to just heat up and send with my husband and son for their lunches.
Mind you, in the beginning I was concerned about getting sick from botulism but so far so good. I would recommend canning to anyone who wanted to store their produce without it taxing their electricity bill.
Stay tuned for more pictures and canning ideas……
