What others are saying....


Thank you Sharon!!!  I made it through the videos. I just have to say, "WOW"!!!!!  I am so excited for you. This is genius!  I just can't say enough how amazing this is.  You have done amazing job!  

It's as if you were in my kitchen telling me how to do it. That's a huge deal I think!  Also, what more could a person ask for, than to have someone lay out all of the info they need, along with the links to get it! 

My thoughts...
The site:  So clean, clear,  & easy to read/follow. Very impressive~

You share great info about yourself, but not too much, and move things along well. Great points about safety. (I think of you each time I hear someone say "I'm scared of using a pressure canner.")

GREAT video!!!  So clear and sound is great.


Very helpful videos! I thought you did a very thorough job. I have been canning many years and learned new things watching your series. Thank you for your dedication to helping more people feel confident about becoming a home canner. 

Lord bless you Sharon,

Thank you this is an awesome set of lessons. LET THE CANNING BEGIN!
