30 TOP Canning Recipes – How to Can Salsa, How to Make Pickles, How to Make Jam

I know today is going to be a long day for me. At least I had a good night sleep! I have a few projects I need to tackle, and one of them today is going to be canning! This is something I am still learning, I have the harvest of strawberries to tackle for today, otherwise this is still unknown territory for me.

I have decided to start my day today getting inspired with the best 30 top canning recipes that I could find. Here is the list. The beauty of these is that the recipes are so ubiquitous, and everyone loves these combinations of fruits, vegetables, sugar and salt, that give us that unbelievable homemade flavor, the feeling of comfort and the old world charm. These recipes are things that you can make even if you are not the most proficient canner – start with them, and you will learn the techniques, and then will be able to make anything canned!

Canning now is a disappearing skill. We can buy everything in stores, and no longer need to preserve as we do not have a stock of food to preserve. We live in the city, and do not have a place to grow an abundance of food that then will need to be canned. And then, at times, when we do get an overwhelming amount of food that we have picked, we panic.

Canning actually is not that complicated. Once you have done it a few times, and have learned the proper techniques and skills, you can do it again. Go to a few local classes where they will teach you how to can things, get your hands dirty with this, be brave! Here is some inspiration below – hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to scroll to the very bottom of the post for a little treat!
