Motivation to start canning came in the form of a tasty chili recipe that we can't seem to get enough of. We decided we liked it better than our pantry staple, Dennison's, and that we'd much rather reach for a "can" of ours.
Steve and I have talked about canning off and on for years. His grandmother canned everything in season, and he grew up watching her toil for days to put up whatever crop ripened next. Her hard work meant their good fortune for the rest of the year.
I'm hoping to stock up our larder with a variety of things to make after-work meals healthier and a lot easier. Click here to go to my canning page.
