Canning Class 101
With garden harvest at its premium, food preservation is foremost on my mind. I am one who does it all. I dry food, ferment food, can food--both boiling water method and pressure can--and freeze food. I truly enjoy the processes. When I teach food preservation classes, I remind participants that this is not the same as when grandma and mom preserved. We have modern conveniences and we know that if something we do in the process doesn't produce the desired outcome, there are still plenty of food options--more on this later. For the most part, food preservation is an emotionally rewarding experience.
