Anyone plan on canning food for the winter?
I think we've got a real tough row to hoe ahead of us. Escalating food prices combined with no money to buy it with by the time winter gets here, I'm thinking of canning some stuff NOW

I usually have a big garden, I can and freeze I also dry. It bothers me what I read a few days ago about the government getting involved in what you can and can not grow and if you do your going to have to have a licsence.
What else does the gov want to control.

Re: Anyone plan on canning food for the winter?
As a kid growing up my family canned an enormous amount of fruits and vegetables.

My Grandmother would go to a commercial farmer and talk them into letting us go into the field and "Glean". That is an ancient Biblical custom that my Grandmother used to talk them into it. She even talked them into letting us go through apple and pear orchards and pick up the bruised and fallen fruit off the ground. This we would turn into apple and pear butter.

Over the years since, I have canned once in a while just to introduce my children to the process, but never on the same scale that my family did in the 50's as a means of survival.

I have stockpiled several shelves full of jars and many boxes of lids, just in case. I have the pressure canner and all the tools to do the job.

The reality of the moment is that canned goods from the supermarket are way cheaper than home grown and canned. The negative of that is you have no control over quality of the product.

I have my vegetable garden growing but I give most of the produce away. I use it to keep fit and to save seeds from year to year.

It is something that should be learned now while there is time to learn from your mistakes. Because when it comes time to do or die there is no time for screw ups.

Re: Anyone plan on canning food for the winter?
no time to can, been looking at dehydrators though, i just need to go get one and start. however, food is f*cking cheap, there is no reason not to stock up , i have a lot put away , but i am going to get a ton more before fall.

for us yankees, i expect a brutal winter, high heating cost, dropping dollar value, disruptions in the food supplies, and a world of shit from the flu alone

costco has great deals on survival foods, cheap

Re: Anyone plan on canning food for the winter?
I am too lazy to can... however, I did dig up most of the yard and laid in a generous supply of potatoes, beets, onions and broccoli.

In my climate they keep well in the winter just sitting out there in the yard - potatoes will keep even through 15 degree temps in the winter just fine. Don't dig them up, they will freeze.

Thats enough food to supplement all winter, then I can take that extra money and pay O'Bammer's funky new cigarette tax.

check out freecycle or craigslist etc. we ended up with a couple hundred jars for free last year because some lady was cleaning out her dad's basement and found the jars unused for many years. She even washed them and individually wrapped them for us. She was happy to get rid of them and we where extatic to get them free.
