Can like your Grandma
For whatever reason, this is the image that conjures the biggest reaction from people who take my food preserving classes. People want to connect to the old fashioned, intentional and more physically demanding type of living that their grandparents lived in a modern way.
Getting your hands in it, using produce from your garden or neighborhood farm or foraged in the forest, these are all touted as new phrases but actually stem from old practices. Ancient practices even.
The good news is that it's never too late to learn. If your mother/grandmother didn't pass down the skills, that's okay. That's what I'm here for. As a Master Food Preserver, I'm here to teach you how to preserve SAFELY, because that's most important to me. Tradition + modern knowledge.
