I have been a subscriber to “Taste of Home” magazine for many years because it’s a great magazine that features no ads, offers a wide variety of wonderful recipes in each edition, and provides helpful cooking tips. The magazine’s on-line website provides many resources that will be of help to both beginner & experienced cooks. Rieman publishing also offers several other magazines that are of great aesthetic and practical value. I highly recommend this family of magazines so please take a moment this weekend to check out the link above and the variety of magazines Rieman offers!
I was browsing through the Taste of Home website this week and found an article I want to share with all the folks out there interested in learning how to preserve fresh produce through the canning process. The link above provides the basics of canning, giving step by step instructions, as well as, providing an overview of the process. The link will be of help to those wanting to try canning but who feel insecure about how to go about it.
One of the topics on my list of topics to address on this blog was the canning process. When I found “Canning 101” I couldn’t wait to share it with my readers. If you find this post helpful, please send me a comment and let me know. I wish you a long and productive “canning” life. Preserving produce you select or grow yourself allows you to take control of what goes into the food you eat. It also is the ultimate convenience food when you come home from work. All you need to do is go to your canning pantry and pull out the ingredients to prepare a nutritious and delicious meal your family will love. It is not only healthy for your body, it is healthy for your pocketbook too!
One of Life’s Simple Pleasures is hearing the “ping” as each lid seals in a batch of jars just out of the canner. Each ping is a testament that there will be another jar of something delicious to eat throughout the year; while affirming your hard work and dedication to taking care of yourself and your family.
