I just discovered this canning site and was thrilled. I have only canned peaches (with an experienced canner) and it's been many years since I did that. I grew up watching my mother can the veggies my dad grew in the garden. I have such fond memories of watching and eating what was put up.
Unfortunately both of my parents have passed and I just wish I would have asked more questions or tried canning with my mom as an adult. You always think they're going to be around forever.
This year I'm determined to grow a garden and do a bit of canning for my family and in her honor.. I bought a book last year on canning but had poor luck with our garden. This year we will try again.
Thanks for letting me be part of this very important group. Looking forward to learning from all of you.
