When we consider canning, keeping food safe for later use is the ultimate goal. Canning refers to the process of either a pressure-cooked or water-bathed method depending on the acidity of your produce. It allows for the storage of food on shelves in glass jars versus taking up limited freezer space. If you are new to canning – please check out your local extension office! They will be able to offer safety tips, equipment recommendations and give explicit instructions on which method is safest for your specific produce
