Thank you so much for your awesome newsletters and software. I just wanted to let you know that I recommend your products every chance I get. My co-worker is looking for something to get her dad for a retirement gift and she thought it was such a great idea.

Canning and Food Storage

Canning is a method of preserving food by first heating it to a temperature that destroys contaminating microorganisms, and then sealing it in air-tight jars, cans or pouches.

Food storage is both a traditional domestic skill and is important industrially. Food is stored by almost every human society and by many animals. Storing of food has several main purposes:

  • Preparation for periods of scarcity or famine.
  • Planning for catastrophe or emergency.
  • Taking advantage of short term surplus of food as at harvest time.
  • Enabling a better balanced diet throughout the year.
  • Preparing for special events and celebrations.
  • Protection against predators or others.

Do you can or store food? We'd like to know.

This months poll is a little different in that there are 2 parts. In order to select an answer in both the canning and food storage sections you need to select an answer, submit (and post a comment if you wish) and then return and select and submit your second answer. Select - submit - return - select - submit.

If you are interested in an accurate poll please don't select more than 2 answers.
