Getting ready for the harvest season requires getting the right canning lids with the right foods and canning processes. We thought you could use a few tips on foods, packaging and canning processes. You might have had some of these questions: How do I process (or can) tomatoes? Where to buy mason jars online? What kind of lid should I use when pressure canning my beef stew? I’ve got a bunch of peaches to can, but I’m tired of using the rings and seals? We may not answer each of theses questions explicitly, but the Home Canning Guide will get you started.
Thanks to writers Kayla Holman and Ty Petersen, we’ve been able to condense most of this canning information into our Canning Wheel infographic. It shows what kinds of foods should be canned in which kinds of processors using which kinds of lids.
But wait! There’s more (sounds like a “As Seen on TV” infomercial, right?). There are so many things that you need to remember when embarking on a home canning adventure: food, jars, recipes, lids, processors, water, sugar, salt and tools that will enable you to handle piping hot equipment. The Home Canning Guide focuses on getting the right kinds of food in the right kinds of jars.
