Canning and Preserving
- Preserved Jun 29, 2011 10:05 AM
I practice small batch preserving and blog about it at through Blogspot as Preserved and Pickled.
I believe there is a renewed interest in gardening and home food preservation which is a reflection of people's desire to have fresh and healthy foods grown locally.
I'm looking for other foodies, bloggers, locavores, with ideas and unique recipes for canning and preserving foods.
What are your thoughts on preserving and pickling at home?
Yeah the search function isn't always perfect. You sound like an experienced canner; but you may be interested anyway in this other thread - talking about a new better homes & gardens issue. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/792220
Definitely keep your eyes open for threads on the Home Cooking board. There are a lot of people who do canning and participate here. There are some "Master Canners" too. It's been very exciting and interesting for me as a (relative) newbie to the whole thing and I've gotten lots of good advice and ideas from people here, especially morwen, momskitchen, and bushwickgirl.
I'd start looking at the online canning guides, such as, the USDA website and the Jarden website.
