I’m not proud of it but when I decided I was going to start canning on my own, it wasn’t pretty. Growing up canning was a way of life in my family. I spent countless hours in the kitchen with my Mom, Grandmother and Aunts just canning away. It’s something I will never forget – I truly loved every minute of it.
As an adult I decided it was time for me to continue the tradition and get to canning. This however is something I wish I could forget. To save everyone else from my humbling mistakes I put together a list of the key steps of the process and what I wish I knew before I started canning.
