There are two basic types of home preservers:

canning for beginners

Those who create for fun. It's a hobby. A way to enjoy foods and create their own delicacies.

Those who are seriously looking at putting up enough food for the whole family. Food preservation is part of a simple frugal lifestyle. They are always on the hunt for new canning recipes.  

Which one are you? I'm a little of both heavy on the lifestyle choice side.

Do you want to develop a new culinary hobby? Are you a food enthusiast? Would you love to be able to create gourmet gifts? You will find the basics you need to be safe and scrumptious.

Let's work together and create those inviting jars of sweet pickle relish, tomato salsa, jams and jellies, gourmet combinations.

This will be a place for you to learn and develop your own skill at this culinary art. Do you love having a self-sufficient feeling? Me too. Let's create a well stocked pantry for you to enjoy.
