Prep Blog Review: How Do You Can Your Food?

With the first crops come the first cans, right? Our gardens are just starting to produce, but there are plenty of things that we can start canning for our stockpiles, and we’ve gathered here some of them.

Also when prepping your food stockpile you should also take into consideration the dietary needs of your family as well as the mistakes to stay away from. So we’ve covered that too in today’s Prep Blog Review.

Go through all the great read we’ve gathered and drop us a line in the comments section below to let us know what are you canning next?

1. Pickled Peppers

Pickle peppers“Many of our hot peppers got into our homemade salsa (which has gotten hotter as the boys have gotten older), but I like to make up a batch of pickled peppers to use in tacos and enchiladas, or even to toss over the top of a roast when we want a little extra heat.

Canning chicken“My wife likes to can food of all types.  One thing that we have had good success with is canning meat.  One of her favorites is to can chicken.
