One thing that we’re sure of, is everyone looks forward to during summer time is the delicious fruits that are in season! Canning is a wonderful way to preserve that delicious local fruit, and help you enjoy it all year long. We've all seen the skids of canning jars at the hardware, but maybe you're not sure if canning is worth it for you.
There are many reasons why we love canning and decided to put together this fun & easy Canning Essentials guide.
1. Financial - Buying produce in season and preserving it to enjoy through the year
2. Eco-Friendly - Canning helps reduce waste associated with pre-packed food, and by buying local when fruits/veggies are in-season, you save on truck emissions
3. Sentiment - This process may help you feel connected to your food and the earth
4. Gifting - Nothing says 'I love you' more than a jar of homemade jam! Share your passion with family and friends!
