Canning season is here!
Check out this awesome GIVEAWAY of exciting miscellaneous canning items (click on photo to enlarge). If you’ve never canned, maybe it will inspire you to give it a try. OR, if you win and you don’t can, you can pass it on to someone who loves to can or wants to learn!
I’m hearing more and more from younger ladies, how they have no idea how to can, but they’d sure love to learn and bring back this lost art!
My cousin Terri and I were discussing on the phone this morning different foods we plan to can this year. I will can my usual peaches, pears, applesauce and tomato sauce. I might even give cherries a try! Our mothers taught us well and we’ve continued this art of canning, now teaching our daughters. We love it when our pantries are full, and you never know in hard times how that full pantry will bless your family and those who come to your table!
Here are 4 easy steps to get you started:
~ Look at garage sales for canning materials, ie, canner, jars, rings.
~ Find someone who cans and ask if they will teach you! (Read Addie's post, here.)
~ Do your research. Call the orchards or markets nearby and find out when different fruits/veggies are in season and when you can get the best deal. Or pick yourself and save money this way.
~ Use the internet! Everything you need to know about canning can be found on the internet – just Google it!
Are you ready to WIN?
All you have to do is answer these TWO questions by commenting on this post, and you are eligible to win! Same as before, use my photo (if you wish) and post on your site and your name goes into drawing twice!
When you entertain, who do you invite?
A variety of friends?
Do you entertain those outside of your faith? Or do you mix it up?
I love everyone’s comments and differences! Hospitality is unique and practiced in so many different ways!
WHOEVER WINS HAS TO SEND ME SOME HOMEMADE JAM! Winner posted on THURSDAY of this week.
