Freezing vs canning

takadi | Jan 4, 2011 06:46 PM

I personally find freezing more convenient, mostly because I don't know how to can, but also because I find the process of sterilizing, boiling water, buying proper containers, etc, to be daunting. My question is, is there really a difference between freezing and canning vegetables, taste-wise, cost-wise, convenience-wise, nutrition-wise, or anything wise? So far, what I've been doing is pre-blanching my vegetables before I freeze them and they turn out fine and the only motivation I would have to can my vegetables is if I ever ran out of freezer space.
