How to can


Boomers like me who grew up in the country have memories of watching our mothers and grandmothers can, but how it’s done is a mystery. This web site has some videos on how to can homegrown food. It also sells canning supplies.

We young’uns had to work at canning time, though. We were given big bowls and were sent to the front porch to break beans. When strawberries were in and Mama was making preserves, we were sent to the front porch to cap strawberries. As I recall, the young’uns pretty much got off the hook for corn and tomatos.
