Canning allows you to store food for later use, and it also makes a great gift for friends and family.
Foods that are less acidic need to be pressure canned.
– Asparagus – Corn – Meat – Fish – Potatoes – Carrots – Cabbage – Spinach – Kale – Green beans – Peas – Beans (such as pinto or kidney) – Apples – Pears
