|Can It Forward 2011|
Canning and putting by food has become very popular once again. A simple Google search for canning recipes will find an astounding 5,740,000 million search results. Searching on just the key word canning will bring a whopping 32,000,000 million results.
Needless to say canning is a very popular food preservation method once again.
Are you a seasoned canner already? Or have you always wanted to learn how to make jams, jellies or pickles and just wasn’t sure how to go about it?
Jarden Home Brands the maker of Ball canning products has teamed up with Canning Across America and created the first annual National Can-It_Forward Day on August 13th 2011.
Check out the Fresh Preserving website for tons of information on canning how to’s, videos, recipes, step by step guides and many more resources.
By far my very favorite tool on the Fresh Preserving site is the Find The Recipe that’s right for you calculator.
Here is a screen shot. Simply check off which fruits or vegetables you have, click off on the type of recipe your looking for and the search results pull up all the recipes available on the site. How awesome is that?
