Group Description


We focus on canning, but also discuss dehydrating, freezing and other safe methods of preserving. Topics include water bath and pressure canning, fruit products, pickles, veggies, meats, using your preserved food, and more!

We welcome anyone who's interested in the conversation, from experienced canners to total newbies. Share recipes for making or using your favorite canned items, ideas for storage or gifts ... and more!

Just remember: this group only allows safe canning methods approved by the USDA/NCHFP … so, if you insist on hanging onto the old, unsafe ways ... don’t promote them here! Our Mothers and Grandmothers used a BWB to can everything ... and maybe they never got sick ... and neither have you ... yet ... but times have changed! Our food is not the same as what people canned 50 years ago. The soil is different, too. So are air and water. To keep our families safe from Botulism and other bad stuff in the modern world, the NCHFP has updated their recommendations scientifically over the years ... just like your doctor has.

Please keep your friends/families safe! Only use SAFE, modern, approved methods for preserving your food! It could save your life, or the life of someone you love.

***No SPAM, NO ADVERTISING products, newsletters, other discussion groups, etc. If you use Grouply, please don't apply!

For access to our recipe files, please join our sister group The Melting Pot .

Sincerely, Linda and Cee!
This group is dedicated to Teri, our canning angel...and Ruth, who helped us all! :)

This group follows the rules developed for canning by the USDA and NCHFP!! We ONLY promote safe canning methods!! Do it for the ones you love!
