Canning seems to be a lost art to most of us in the baby boomer generation. Why can things yourself when it's so convenient to buy it already canned. But when I learned to can with the help of DH, I discovered how canned food can actually still have flavor. I can also control what goes into it whether it be a light syrup or water. I talked with my great friend Debra last night and she said she wanted to learn to can. She came over this morning and we made canned pineapple ($1 pineapples) and peach-pineapple jam. I also used the jam to experiment with the Pomona Pectin. It was gelling nicely on the canning funnel when cooled, so I have high hopes.
Thanks Deb, for letting me teach you. It was fun and I got some jam too!
