Canning season is a year-round affair. However, for us here in New England canning and preserving starts mid to end of summer and goes through fall.
While we love eating fresh fruits and vegetables straight from the garden or farmers market, there is usually an abundance of produce. So what better way to use up the excess than preserving and canning it to enjoy during the long winter months.
We may not have all the answers to your preserving questions, but we are here to remind you now is the time to organize and take inventory of your canning ingredients and utensils. Take a look below and maybe you will find something new to add to your canning collection.
