Great blog topic, while it is easier to freeze now a days there are somethings that just taste better when they are canned. For me there is nothing like getting that first batch of tomato juice up for the year.

I haven't had the opportunity to do much canning yet, but rest assured as soon as the tomatoes are ready, it will be nonstop around here for awhile.

hello all I am a little nervous about canning. It doesnt seem that hard but I guess i have a preconcieved notion that it is. Any advise and can you make say a tomato sauce then just can it? I'm assuming you can but not sure. What if you make a meat sauce? would that be ok?

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at
