"Thank you for the awesome video. You're right. It's not as scary, as I made it out to be. I'm definitely more confident in using a pressure canner. Can't wait for the next video to learn more.

Pressure Canning Confidence

Learn How to Use Your Pressure Canner Today

No Fear or Overwhelm!

Join the workshop now.

Canning low-acid foods like meat and most vegetables require the use of a pressure canner, to prevent the risk of botulism. You MUST use a pressure canner, and that causes problems for some people. 

Are you one of those people terrified of your canner?  Do you sometimes feel silly?  You are not alone and you are NOT silly.

You are actually one of the smart ones.  I know you'll do fine because you care.  You want to use your canner correctly.  So, you'll do fine.  I worry more about those who don't care and just wing it.   Watch this series and you won't be just winging it.  

Who are these sessions for?

  • If you are afraid of your pressure canner, you want these classes.
  • If you bought a pressure canner and it just sits there… you want these classes. 
  • If you are trying to decide if you want a pressure canner or not… you want these classes. 

“I just watched the first video in your series and you are correct.  My mother put the fear of God in us when she was using her pressure canner.  So when the "top" started moving she would make us all leave the kitchen.   We were a family of seven children and pretty much all of us are intimidated by pressure canners. 

I thought this first video was extremely helpful.  I understand how it works now and the safety features that have been figured into them.”   Pam

Simply Canning thank you for the videos.

I have had my canner going on 3 summers now.  The last two, I get it out, put it on the table, and played with the lid. But that's as far as it has gone! Watching your video has helped me out.  Now I will do it this summer for sure. Thank you again." ~ Beth Ann

“Thanks for this series.  I have been wanting to start canning using pressure canners but was very concerned.  I didn't want to go into the venture and purchase a canner and then not use it."  ~ Beth Ann
