Canning resources

I was asked if I had any favorite canning resources, so even though I am really new to this, I will share what I know.

The first is a cyber-friend Sharon's Simply Canning. She even has a new to canning free ecourse that you can sign up for.

Then the next thing I did was buy a book. We didn't have it in the library here in South Africa, so I bought Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. This is truly a treasure trove of recipes.

Then I also used Pick Your Own for jam recipes and freezing tips. I know they have lots more there other than jam, but the first two resources covered the rest.

Hope this helps those wanting to start out. BTW, when I realized that I would not be able to provide completely from my garden, I settled my heart on also buying in season fruit and veg and preserving it. This means that I buy what I can when it is at it's cheapest. Buying in season also reduces food miles and is much better for my wallet.
