Boy, the canning season is upon us… for those who like to preserve goods for the winter and long term storage. I’ve been waiting for the tomatoes to appear in abundance so I can get my tomato canning completed. The weather here in Utah has been so cool that everything is ripening two weeks late. The peaches are just beginning to appear also.
If you’re into canning and preserving… check out my new site Canning and Preserving. I’ve dedicated the site to my grandma Ella and my momma, Evelyn, who were the best canners in the world. They were both from Georgia… so I’ve added a little southern flare here and there to make it interesting. Also.. if your are into using herbs…. my sister Sheila’s site is the place to go for Easy Herb Gardening. Lots of good ideas there.
Well, off to see if there are any ripe peaches available for making peach slush or cobbler.
P.S. Canning and preserving food for long term storage is part of my family’s traditions. I notice that it’s not as popular as it once was. Do you can and preserve food? How to you prepare for long term storage? I’d love to hear your ideas.
