Welcome, Northern Girl, and all of you who are fairly new-welcome again. And everyone has something to contribute, even if you don't know much about canning. I've had people give me wonderful ideas about how to use something I canned, because they are good cooks or they bought something once. Life experience is valuable, and we all have that in different areas.

Yes, this year has made it a good one for homemade soups! We are experiencing a short heatwave (teens) before the next foot of snow. It makes a person feel like baking something! Keep warm, everyone!

Hi and Welcome Northern Girl. If I can make a pressure canner work, anyone can. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy. Also, hot water bath for your canned goods is even easier and just takes more time to process, that I why I prefer the pressure canner over the hot water bath. Good luck.

Hello all,

I'm not new, per se, to SP, but back again and starting fresh.

Goals for 2009 - run, slowly, a 5K race in November; learn to make my own cheese and yogurt; start a veggie garden and augment with a share from the local CSA.

I live in northern Maine (NoME) where, today, it is not predicted to get above zero. This makes local eat a smidgen difficult in the winter, but I do what I can. I use a lot of potatoes (we grow 'em here), local wheat, buckwheat, honey and frozen fruits from the summer to make it through. I am not a true locavore, but rather someone who's trying to deepen my relationship with myself and my environs.

I like to can and am pretty good at it for a young'n.I often freeze fruits and veggies instead of learning to use the pressure cooker. So, now you know what's on my summer list of things to learn. :)

Can't wait to learn more from all of you!
