Canning your own fruits, vegetables, jams and jellies can save a lot of money. Some people can meat, poultry and butter, also. I haven’t, yet. I do have a pressure canner now, and would like to try canning meats and soups. Oh, and spaghetti sauce.
Once you buy your jars, as long as you take good care of them, your only yearly expense is buying the canning lids. Well, not counting the food to put in the jars, if you buy fruits and veggies from local farmers.
I was so happy to find this site, Reusable Canning Lids. I haven’t ordered any yet, as I just found it. I plan on it, though.
These lids will save money over buying new lids each year.
