Save Summer: Canning Food
Signs of a new season are all around. The colors are changing, the leaves are falling, and the temperature is chilling out a bit.
With the change of seasons also comes a change in nature’s bounty. New fruits and veggies start to line the shelves of your local grocery stores and farmer’s markets. But summer brings an abundance of tasty treats. If you’ve got a kitchen full of green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers and berries, try canning to preserve them and avoid waste.
What is canning? Well it’s a way of saving food to extend it’s shelf life. The items are processed and sealed in an airtight container, like a mason jar or tin can, and then ready store for use later.
