Does anyone do it?I have always wanted to.My Mom always did
My grandmother did but I was so young and they moved to Florida. She is gone now but she was a great cook. She never measure anything so most of her recipes went with her. I have always wanted to do some canning but I have been a little afraid to do it. I would spend all the money for the stuff and mess it up or someone would sick because I did not do it right.
I canned for the first time last summer! All we did was cherries, cherry jam and plum jam, but they were sooo yummy! I want to do more this year, and plan on starting a garden. It wasn't that hard, but pretty labor intensive, AND HOT!
Is it expensive?Do you grow your own to can or buy the fruits,etc at the store?I know my Mom had a garden and cherry tree.
I do not. I freeze any produce we don't use right away.
I've never learned how. My mom and neither of my grandmothers ever did it either.
Pickles only, about every 2 years.
