Canning for Food & Fun!
By Sue Mosbacher
UCCE Master Food Preserver of El Dorado County
Talk to someone about home canning and the topic will inevitably turn to jars of tomatoes because of prolific plants and jams from a home orchard’s harvest. But what about those of us who only have room to grow enough to eat as we pick it, have tiny little gardens or no garden at all?Are we destined to listen politely until the conversation changes to a new topic?
Of course not! You don’t need a garden to preserve food at home. You don’t even need a specific season to can; it’s a year-around activity.
