Canning Technique


Preserving the harvest from your garden or orchard is a time-honored tradition that we are happy to promote with our many free canning technique and other food preservation articles. The following sub-directories present articles on home canning techniques, food dehydration, pickling, freezing, jam making & more.

In our fast-paced, fast food society, the skills & techniques that our grandparents and great-grandparents routinely used to store foods have been largely forgotten. We encourage you to pass your knowledge of food preservation and canning techniques on to interested youth so that this heritage is not lost to future generations.
