Canning / Preserving Recipes

We love to garden – and the only way to enjoy some of that great garden food year round is through the age old art of canning. Each fall – our goal is to fill our pantry with enough canned food to last us until next year’s garden can start producing.  Growing up, both of our families were avid canners and preservers, and we were lucky to have their knowledge and techniques passed down to us.  Below you will find recipes and helpful hints on canning and freezing from all of our previous posts.  Just click on the pictures below to go right to the post. Happy canning!!!

    I am looking for a tomato garden soup. I remember we put all the veggies in jars and filled them with water and a teaspoon of salt then hot water bath for 20 or 30 min. It’s been a while so not sure if we the water or not. This is the first time on your sight and so far I really enjoy it. If you can help that would be great. Thanks Jen

    I love your recipes and I would like to try your pasta sauce do you need to add any type of lemon juice to prevent bacteria build up. Most recipes I have seen call for lemon juice?
