Canning

Post  al2n on Sun Jun 30, 2013 9:21 pm

Back in Alaska we canned loads of salmon every year with the occasional dozen jars of raspberry or blueberry jam.

Now that we are in the beautiful pacific northwest, we have more options open when it comes to putting food away for the winter. Been loving all the fresh produce and cheap meat. Found a pressure canner at a yard sale a couple weeks ago and have started to put some food away for use in the winter, sudden unemployment or other such time when money is short or prices are high.

Found a couple you pick farms nearby and am waiting for the fruit to ripen. August should be a busy month with lots of jams, jellies, and preserves going into the pantry. Blackberries grow wild all along the roads here and they will be ripe around the same time.

So many choices, so little time.
