  • There’s More to Canning than Meets the Storm

    By PenneyLane4
    I found "Canning & Preserving for Beginners" by Rockridge Press,” just a few months after suffering a power outage that lasted a week. I had just had my groceries delivered, so when the power went out, I lost everything. It was like taking $300 and throwing it in the wind. Reading through this magnificent book has taught me that despite my limitations in the kitchen, (and I do mean limitations), I can still drum up some tasty dishes, that will last through any storm and its aftermath that I might encounter. In addition, it’s great fun to have the fundamentals of my dinners already created. All I have to do is open up a jar, and the best part of my meals simply needs to be warmed up. Don’t be afraid of canning, it is incredibly simple, and makes a lot of sense, and cents, too!
