Canning 101: Start Here

What is canning? Why can your own food? How do you start canning and what tools do you need? This is a comprehensive learning to can video that attempts to give a basic understanding of home canning using both a water bath canner and a pressure canner. We cover several types of canning methods, what is approved and not approved by the USDA, how to read canning recipes, and common questions and problems.

*Note we are not master canners. This is simply a starting place to introduce tools, equipment, terminology, and resources so a beginner canner has a base knowledge for doing research.
