Home Canning

Candy | Aug 31, 2008 02:03 PM

I have noticed a resurgence in interest in home canning this summer. A local hardware store says supplies are flying off the shelves. I get a number of younger customers looking for canning goods and info in the shop. This week I am going to help 2 friends learn to can tomatoes. Today I got my stuff out and made 4 little (jam sized) jars of hot dilly beans with haricot verts. I may do more later in the week. It is such a quick and easy thing to do and they make great Christmas gifts.

I had kind of just not done much of it in the past few years. What are you putting up? Jams, jellies, preserves, pickles, tomatoes etc. Do you have any interest? Are you an old hand at it or a newbie?
