-No Pressure! In the summer we are slamming through canning recipes. There is so much food all at once and it’s a race to preserve before it rots. In the winter things are so laid back. The stuff I’m canning comes from the pantry or freezer and it doesn’t HAVE to be done that day. I’m canning broth and beans before I run out and my supplies are already preserved, not rotting in containers on every surface of my home!
- It’s warm! When it is 90 degrees outside, it’s really hard to appreciate this by product of canning, but when it’s on 20 degrees outside it’s wonderful.
- It’s humid! Like the temperature thing, it’s really hard to appreciate the humidity mid-summer. Currently I have a cold and canning is pumping humidity into our very dry house (thanks to forced hot air). The moisture really helps break things up. Sounds gross when your also discussing food, haha, but it is really helpful.
Do you do any winter canning?
