If so, why do you do it? What do you can? How big is your stash? Your best tried and true recipes? I can, did it years ago but only now got back into it. I can because I"m beyond paranoid that something will happen and we won't have money to buy food. If I have canned fresh food, I know I can feed my family and do so healthily. I have 1/4 of my pantry stocked with canned goods. Bread & Butter and Dill Pickles, pickled okra and asparagus, dilly green beans and dilly carrots, herbed green beans, veggie stew, pasta sauce, salsa; carrots, green beans and potatoes (canned with only water). TONS of it. 28 pints of pasta sauce, 14 pints of salsa, 5 pints of dilly green beans, 5 pints of dilly carrots, 9 pints of herbed green beans, 3 pints of pickled asparagus, 10 quarts and 2 pints of bread and butter pickles, 7 quarts of End of the Garden pickles, 2 quarts green beans, 4 quarts of carrots, 5 quarts of potatoes, 5 quarts of dill pickles, 5 quarts and 7 pints of veggie soup, 2 pints and 5 quarter pints of peach syrup (peach butter that didn't thicken), 4 pints and 9 half pints of very cherry jam, 4 pints and 1 quarter pint of raspberry jam, 3 pints pickled okra, 1 pint and 11 half pints of peach butter, and 1 pint, 11 half pints and 4 quarter pints of fieldberry jam. (all made from ingredients from my garden, from a local farmers market or organic produce from the grocery store). THat doesn't include what we've already eaten, either. I hope to do more fresh veggies in water. Will provide recipes for anything I already canned (above) upon request. I like to keep it simple: fresh veggies canned in plain water. That way you can season them, cook them how you like!
