  1. I’m going to need to look into this before winter. My parents back in Oregon are really into canning. I want to be but because I have been moving a lot, I don’t see the point…I don’t want to collect all the jars etc then have to move again. Tips??

  2. I think it’s a great life skill to have, and you just use it when you can. For me, canning is a lot about the process (I just really enjoy making jam! It helps me de-stress) and having a homemade gift to give people at the holidays. In the off season, I use jars to store my kitchen supplies (beans, rice, etc.) so you can think of them as double purpose in that way. I would say do what feels right to you.

    I do a lot of small batch canning (just a few half pints at a time) so you could do it as a side hobby that way, and not accumulate a lot of jars. You can use what you already have (e.g. a big pasta pot for a canner) and not need to invest in any extra materials other than the jars. I’m going to write a post soon on need to have vs. nice to have for canning, so hopefully that will give you some more guidance, too. Good luck!

  9. Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a
    top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.
