Home Canning Questions

I often have folks ask me if their particular recipe is safe to can. The recipes will range from simple to elaborate. 

I don't have the facilities to test recipes.  These are the type of home canning questions that I'll refer you to your extension service. They have the resources to do testing. I'm just a mom who loves to can! 

Your local extension service is a great place to get answers. Please consider giving them a call. Here is a place to look up the phone numbers.  My experience with our local office is helpful and friendly.

Remember Simply Canning is a one woman operation. I may not be able to get back to you immediately. If your question really needs an answer right away you will be better off calling your local extension.

If there is no office listed for your town. Just find the next closest one. They don't have to be in your hometown to answer your question over the phone.

If you have questions on long term food storage and emergency preparedness check out Family Survival Planning. They have a wealth of information.
