I've done relatively little canning and never alone. Always with a friend who knows way more than I. How easy do you think this is. and safe. That always worries me.

I've not done it because I have not had to. I found that I could buy fresh and frozen cheaper and I love eating the fresh. I realize now I may have to do some of it...especially for the meat, but I would really like to learn the art of drying fruits and veggies.

Easy enough, the fda has put a lot of fear in people. I have been canning for some time and will not go back.

Calyps, nothing better in winter time eating your own canned food. The taste alone is worth it. Next time you are in a book store or Walmart look for Ball Blue Book. Worth every penny....Plus it is a social event for us.

Friends, good wine and canning outside on the weekends is a blast.

I could handle that. I'm not sure but I may have found that book and purchased it.

I DO. I can't believe how fast I found it. But the cover is different. I'm thinking it's the same. right?

I think so. They change the cover for marketing....

As long as you think clean you will be OK. Pressure canning main dishes (meat) for winter is such a good feeling.

Her is a interesting article...

Thanks for the tip! I've been wanting to can and I have a small garden every year. I even bought jars and lids last year. Now I'll just have to pick up a pot and those clamp things to lift the jar. Can't wait!!! What are the best things to can that I can easily grow? I know you can't can squash. Bummer!

Dolly, just start off with the simple things in the book . Once you get comfortable increase the skill level.
