Canning makes a comeback. Is it just another foodie trend? Or is canning back for good?
Eating locally has been the trend for a while now, but in-home food preservation is starting to make a comeback. And with more people gardening, it’s time to learn how to preserve those delicious delights of summer. Everyone’s saying it’s yet another indicator of a more frugal America.

How to get started? Well, here are some neat blogs: Food in Jars, Doris and Jilly, Bumblebee Blog

And lots of references: National Center for Home Food Preservation, Ball Book of Home Preserving, Canning USA

This year Ball has everything you need to get started, but really all you need are some jars and some other stuff you may already own.
