Canning


Welcome to the Canning and Preserving Page

Canning & Preserving - great ways to take the harvest we work so hard for and bring it to the dinner table through the winter months. The flavor and color is generally better than store bought products. And depending on how you process, your garden can deliver more nutrition to your family as well. Freezing typically retains more nutrients than pressure canning, but there is always the risk of loosing the freezer to electrical problems. Pressure canned foods are good for a couple of years. So.....the choice is really up to the individual.

The CO-OP stocks all things canning and the good news is, we stock canning supplies ALL YEAR ROUND! We do that because when produce comes on, we are sometimes so busy that berries have to go in  the freezer, and vegetables in the root cellar until we have time to deal with them .
