Blog #4 How and What (part 2)

Last week was BWB canning (boiling water bath), good for jams, jellies, syrups, pickles, and fruit preserves.Coming up soon will be Pressure canning (meats, low acid vegetables, soups), and drying, fermenting, and freezing.

So, before getting into pressure canning, I’d like to start my weekly new thing: specials at local (Ontario) grocery stores relevant to food storage.

So, the format will likely change as I figure out the bests way to do this, but today we’ll go with a spreadsheet.
