Last January I decided it was time for me to take some small steps to healthier eating, no I do not mean some fad diet like Paleo, Raw Vegan, and Gluten Free. No pills, drinks or patches because in all honesty those do not work. A diet that restricts or removes the food you enjoy is never going to succeed the way you want it to. I would hate to think that I could never sit down again and enjoy my favorite (fill in the blank) because it is not on the list of foods I can have. I also don’t want to take anything that hasn’t been approved by the FDA that ten/fifteen/twenty years down the road are going to find out that those little diet aids cause (fill in the blank), thank you but I have enough problems as it is.

I just picked up and decided to can something about 30 years ago, and it worked out so well that I continued to can things through the years...easy. I didn't think about how difficult it was or how complicated the process. The first thing I just up and canned was a bunch of little jars of apple butter, and I used the inversion method (no longer recommended)and things just turned out. I probably inherited some strange canning gene from the women folk in my family.
