Discover the best approach to stocking your survival pantry
Canning and preservation is a form of food preparation that allows you to store food for an extended period of time. Used as a reliable means of food preparation since the beginning of time, canning has recently seen resurgence as a healthy way of cooking and storing food.
Food can be stored for weeks, even months in specially designed glass containers known as Mason jars. They first made their appearance in the 1850s as a safe and effective way to store food without the risk of spoiling and have been a popular storage device since. Today, these jars are used to prepare and store all types of foods, from quick meals such as salads and breakfast oats, to more elaborate meals such as pastas and no-bake casseroles in a jar. These containers have also found great use as a means of survival storage.
Using simple tools at home, sterilizing equipment and a canner, you can prepare and seal foods such as pickles, relishes, jams and sauces in Mason jars. These containers are just as useful for storing dried foods such as nuts, cereals and also ground and cubed meats.
Join in the revolution of preserving food the healthy way. With a basic understanding of the process of Canning and a collection of your favorite foods, you can master the process of canning and preservation in no time.
