For part of my adult life I was jealous of people who could can fruits and vegetables at home. I admired their beautiful jars of peaches and relish. As a person who has always enjoyed growing food, home canning loomed as an important skill for me to learn.
So one day I got over my fears of putting up jars of food poisoning and taught myself home canning. I reasoned that it could not be that difficult. Mason jars are for sale everywhere and millions of people do it all the time.
Just like me you can easily acquire the skills to become a home canner, using at least a boiling water bath and maybe one day even a pressure canner. The pressure canner by the way does a divine job on tomato sauce and also enables you to can soups, stocks, and other low-acid foods.
I share my knowledge in a short ebook. It's a fast read and contains the advice you need to start preserving food at home. Whether you get the information from my ebook or someone else's book, just know that to successfully put up food safely all you need to do is:
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!
This mostly means you process the food for the time required. Easy.
