I'm a confirmed book-aholic, and I'm quite eclectic in my reading tastes. Books on livestock care share shelves with gardening how-to's, works of fiction, my Icelandic dictionary and a wide variety of cookbooks.
Among the latter are quite a few canning books. I do love putting food in jars. Opening the pantry door and gazing on shelves of vegetables, fruits and sauces gives me a great sense of accomplishment and peace. We'll have blackberry jam in January, and sweet corn in the depths of winter.
NOTE: I was given a free copy of The Prepper's Canning Guide so that I could write
this review, however all opinions expressed in this post are my own.
I will only review items that I'm sure you will love!
Don't let the name of this one scare you off. Homesteaders and preppers have a lot in common: both desire to be self-sufficient. Both strive for a deep pantry, and we as homesteaders know that the easiest and least expensive way to build a pantry is to can that food ourselves, whether we grew it or bartered for it with friends and neighbors or purchased it at the local farmers market.
One way to build a deep pantry is with expensive freeze-dried foods and with processed foods purchased from the grocery store using sales and coupons. While these items have their place in a deep pantry, you can affordably stock up on nutritious and healthy foods by canning, using both the water bath and pressure canning methods.
If you're an old hand at canning, you'll appreciate the practical alternatives she has included in The Prepper's Canning Guide (*), such as how to can without electricity. (If you have a gas stove, you'll probably need electricity to ignite the burners, did you know that?)
Better yet, safely preserve that meat in jars before the power outage ever happens. You'll sleep better at night.
