Yes, We CAN!

              I recently read the art of home canning is making a comeback, thanks to renewed appreciation for locally grown produce.  For us, home canning has been around for generations. Throughout the years, it allowed us to preserve that fresh, home grown flavor from our garden for use all year long and it has been a perfect way to manage the ingredients in our recipes. By using organic ingredients, our family not only gets the garden fresh flavor of fresh produce, but we also avoid any undesired ingredients like additives and preservatives found in many commercial products.
