Transporting Home Canned Food
Thank you for this site! Very informative, & I hope my unusual question can be answered here.
I haven't canned anything for years & years (not since helping my Mom on the farm as a child), but would like to start again using more modern, safer methods (yup, I've done my research).
The problem is, I live, work and travel in an RV (a lifestyle I love that suits me as I have my own company), and store things that don't fit in the RV in a cargo trailer I tow behind.
The home canned foods would have to be stored in the trailer. I can make sure the jars are stable, cool, dry and dark (like a pantry or cellar), but the big question is, will the constant movement break the seals? I can only avoid so many potholes and manhole covers, but taking into account head space, that would likely result in 'sloshing'. Not safe?
I hope I will be able to can, in order to take advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables I find along the way, and enjoy the type of 'farm cooking' my mother used to provide.
Any advice would be welcome. Thanks again.
