One of the blogs I follow is Jackie Clay's Homesteading blog on the Backwoods Home Magazine website. She is a true guru on home canning (among other things) and has even written books on how to do it!
She has written an excellent article on things you can do to avoid common canning errors. Anyone interested in learning how to can should read this article If you have experienced any kind of problem while canning, or know of someone else who has, this article has advice for you! If you want to learn how to can, but haven't tried your hand at it yet, read this article to learn how to avoid potential problems.
I think canning is fun! Made with fresh ingredients and free of artificial preservatives, food you can yourself tastes better and is better for you than anything canned commercially! Take it from me, it is very rewarding to put up your own food for the winter.
I hope you enjoy this article!
