Get Ready to Can Your Garden Surplus
If you are a home canner, this is the time of year to plan ahead and prepare. Get your equipment and supplies out and inspect them so you are ready when the crops are.
for Home Food Preservation is your source for current research-based recommendations for most methods of home food preservation. The Center was established with funding from the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture (CSREES-USDA) to address food safety concerns for those who practice and teach home food preservation and processing methods. On the website they offer publications, seasonal tips, FAQ’s and links related to all methods of food preservation. There is also a new self paced on-line course for those wanting to learn more about home canning and preservation. You will find all of this information and more at http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/
