I wonder how it would work. I too am canning like crazy this year. I'm loving the pressure canner! I converted about .25 acres of my yard to a garden...inspired by the book: The Backyard Homestead http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=backyard+homestead&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&prmd=ivnsb&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1366&bih=588&wrapid=tlif131441400477110&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=18194567980316843352&sa=X&ei=sF1YTt-HHKHD0AGImfXJDA&ved=0CFcQ8wIwAA# It has all kinds of useful info...including how to make dandelion wine...just in case the s really does htf and we get desperate for booze...ha, ha. [/quote] thanks for the info! da booze would be high on the list of barterable items. :22much: i'm going to check on the book. sounds interesting. i read a great book on companion planting earlier this year. i wanted to do that, but my father had his own ideas. maybe next year. we have nearly an acre of garden. it's hard work. then all the canning. i nearly cry with relief(and a certain amount of terror)when it rains. then i can stay indoors. chill for awhile. we all need to get sharp on aquiring storable foods. i think of myself as preparing my nest, in a way. when our families need this food or we simply consume it, we'll be glad we took the time, effort and money to do for our selves. :fridge: [/quote]
last year i canned for the first time. wow, i was nervous.
this year, i'm doing better. i have been canning like mad.
if you'd like, tell us your how's and why's. learning to preserve food is one of the most important skills a person can learn.
if you have a picture of your preserved foods uploaded, let me know and i'll post it for you.
