Prepare Now for Canning Season

Nothing is worse than being in the middle of a canning project and realizing that you just ran out of an important ingredient. No matter where you live, running to the grocery store can be a hassle, but if you live out in the country it can turn into a several hour sidetrack… not to mention the cost of gas, buying ingredients at premium pricing and the loss of production time at home.

Preserving season starts in a few weeks with rhubarb, followed closely by cherries here at Homesteading Family.

Whether you are planning on putting up thousands of jars or just a few, stock up now for your canning season and save yourself the trouble of running out of supplies.

In this video, Carolyn tells you what she socks up on every spring in order to be ready for the canning season.

Josh and Carolyn
Josh and Carolyn both grew up with a love of the country life, good food and watching things grow. Their first tiny garden together started on a balcony in a city apartment 15 years ago and has grown along with their family to producing over 75% of their needs. Now on 40 acres in North Idaho, they raise all of their own meat, 90% of their dairy products and 75% of their fruit and veggies…all done naturally while being stewards of the land and caring for a family of 10! This passion for country living, good eating, and nurturing life has grown into a passion for sharing the journey and lessons learned with others. It is their desire to be a blessing and encouragement to others seeking the beauty and abundance of a healthy homesteading life!
