  1. I haven't canned since we moved to Florida 13 years ago, but I'd love to get back to it. There's just something very satisfying about putting up rows of jars full of beautiful fruits and vegetables. I love "shopping" from my own pantry - and knowing just what is in the food I serve to my family. I'll be back to learn more about the webcast and perhaps a few new canning techniques, too! Happy Sunday, Abbey and Sara.

  2. I've been canning since I was 12 years old, helping my mother can EVERYTHING. We had to purchase very little from the store as we had it all. She even canned Chickens. So milk and bread were about all we purchased, since we lived on a farm. She made wonderful strawberry, grape and currant jelly, yum. To have some of that now ... About all I can now is Apple Butter and I love that.
    Looking forward to your canning party.

  3. I use the Ball Canning Jars to can, peaches, pears, tomatoes, pickles, and green beans!
