Who makes Simply Canning great?  

The first 5 yrs of Simply Canning I (Sharon) worked alone on this passion of mine.  It was a hobby that I adored and spent hour upon hour creating.  NOW.... I am happy and thrilled to have grown to a point where I need help.  :) And along came these wonderful folks! These contributors add more depth of information, variety, and more value to my readers, You!

I'd like to introduce this amazing team I am blessed with.
