Food Preservation

Preserving Your Future Health
Food is Nutrition
Nutrition is Medicine

This section only shares some basic information on food preservation I do here on the homestead. Further recommendations on canning will be in follow up articles. Please follow your canner's instructions for canning or look up your local extension office recommendations.


Never use rogue internet recipes for canning. I have seen many people post articles and seen mistakes in recipes that run the risk of foodborne illness. Only use proven methods approved by the USDA to keep your family safe and healthy.
