What NOT to Do...

What’s the worst thing you can do when you want to learn how to preserve foods at home?

Put some food in a jar, boil it, and see how it goes. After all, if it seals it must be good… right? 

Um, no… don’t do that!

You may get food in jars but, is it preserved safely?

Will you be watching your kids closely after dinner to see if anything happens!?  Just… in… case.

"Love your site! I've learned so much and it is amazingly satisfying in January to pull out a jar of canned fruit or veggies...it tastes just like summer! Love it and so glad I realized the joys of canning!" 

Mona Says

"Very helpful videos! I thought you did a very thorough job. I have been canning many years and learned new things watching your series. Thank you for your dedication to helping more people feel confident about becoming a home canner."

Nadine says

"It's as if you were in my kitchen telling me how to do it. That's a huge deal I think! Also, what more could a person ask for, than to have someone lay out all of the info they need, along with the links to get it!"

Shannon Says

"Hi Sharon - my husband purchased us your Canning Basics videos, and I've really been enjoying them. You're a great teacher and it's easy to get excited about all the possibilities since your videos make me feel like I can actually do this thing."

"My husband and I love your guidance. We have always wanted to can but was afraid of it until we found you! When we first bought your classes we started with the water baths for tomatoes then you gave us some confidence and we made the leap and bought a pressure canner. I was terrified of that thing! We watched your classes and now I understand how it works so I am not afraid of it anymore. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you. I am afraid practices like preserving food are becoming a lost art, and that will be a bad thing. Our goal is to someday to be able to have a very full pantry of foods we grew ourselves and preserved ourselves. "

Melissa Zuber

A note for troubled times.

Lots of craziness is going on lately! I encourage people to think about self-reliance even in the good times.  Right now it’s even more important.  If you are fearful, then doing something gives you some sense of control.  Starting a garden and learning to preserve your food are two things you can do. 

Right now yearly access to Simply Canning School is dropping to half price.

Hi all, Sharon here.

Imagine what it would feel like to finally get that canner off the shelf!

Put that unused canner to good use! Spend so more time canning, and less time researching. So much more time enjoying delicious meals with your family, and less time worrying that you've done it right. So much more time actually making progress on your canning goals, and less time feeling like you're never making headway.  

 I'd love to invite you to my kitchen so I can help you get a good start canning and preserving your own food.

Join me! Start canning with confidence.

"I have got to say I have really enjoyed watching your videos. I’ve learned so much. You do an awesome job at it. I wasted a lot time on YouTube watching videos because everyone would cover the same basic info and never get into all the extra stuff like how to best peel your tomatoes. Thanks for taking it to the next level."
