Simple summer canning: Preserving flavors for later


My garden is filled with many delights – too many to use over just the summer months.

With that in mind, I figured this would be a good time to talk about simple summer canning and marinades. Instead of feeling you must use all your garden fruits and vegetables immediately, how about preserving them to enjoy at a later date?

Canning requires only simple equipment that you can buy at low cost, borrow, or find at a local garage sale. I recommend you start off with a starter canning kit or view the many canning alternatives that you may have at home to keep the cost down. You simply need a large pot, canning tongs, funnel, and canning rack to keep your jars stable, with a variety of jars and lids suitable for your project.
