It's that time of the year! Canning season! I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it is to see shining rows of home canned foods lined up in your pantry. I remember my grandmother canning every year. I was just to young at the time to be of much help with it. Unless of course you count the hundreds and hundreds of peas we shelled on the back porch in the evenings.
I didn't learn to can until about four years ago. I'll admit I was a bit nervous and not quite sure where to start. I had tons of questions and searched for answers everywhere. My friend kymber and I found an on-line canning class and became "canning buddies". I've learned a lot since then for sure! But it would have been nice to have had a straightforward and easy to understand guide that answered my many questions. I was thrilled when I found out that Patrice from Rural Revolution had written three awesome EBooks that covered most any question a person might have on the wonderful "art" of canning. Simple, straightforward and easy to understand guides which are also easy on the pocketbook.
If you have ever wanted to learn to can or have just been thinking about it but don't know where to start I highly recommend you check these out. I especially like the Canning FAQ's.
I've included the descriptions below. Here's the link to this great bunch of books.Thanks Patrice for putting these great books together!!
