One of the most cost effective and easiest ways to build a long term food storage stockpile for your family is by canning your own food at home. Unfortunately, many people don’t do this because they never learned how to do it and are too scared to try it. The whole “fear of canning” thing kind of boggles my mind, personally. I grew up on a farm and canning food was just a common everyday life skill. But for many, this isn’t the case.
This is where my friend Daisy Luther’s new book, The Prepper’s Canning Guide, comes into play. If you are looking for a book that can teach you how to can your own food, written from a preparedness mindset, then this is the book for you!
What’s in the book…
First of all it’s written for preppers by a prepper. There aren’t a lot of canning books written from this perspective. It’s an added bonus when the author “speaks your language”.
Food safety is covered in detail. You learn all the potential risks and how to avoid them.
Canning 101. The book teaches the beginner what equipment and tools they need and detailed explanations on how to preform the process.
Recipes. This book has lots of detailed recipes covering jams, condiments, pickles, fruit, vegetables, meats, beans, soups, stews, main dish meals, and even how to can left overs.
There are easy to use reference charts, conversion tables, and quick tips that can be found and used at a glance.
The Bottom Line
If you are a preparedness minded person who wants to learn how to can, this 175 page book is an excellent resource. This book contains everything you need to know to start putting up your own nutritious, delicious, shelf-stable, food reserves. I highly recommend that everyone learns how to can their own food and I highly recommend this book as place to get the skills and knowledge needed to get started.
