By Gaye Levy – Backdoor Survival
A pressure canner can be a prepper’s best friend, especially if there is access to home grown fruits and veggies, or a local farm community that will sell you “less than pretty” items for a song. On the other hand, mention the phrase “pressure canning” to someone who has never canned and they will start to shake and shiver with fear.
I know, because I did. The reality however, is that canning using modern methods is very safe. With a modicum of diligence, there is no need to be afraid and a lot to be gained in the process. Heck, my good friend Daisy Luther is a canning maniac and cans for relaxation. She even wrote a book about it.
