Learn Home Canning

Discover how to fill your pantry with garden-fresh produce to feed your family healthy, nutritious food.

It's about canning with confidence.

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. 

Simply Canning School 50% off.   

This is an unplanned sale.  I’m not sure how long it will last.  I’m playing it by ear just like everyone else. 

If you are staying home anyway.  This will keep your mind and hands busy.  And if this all blows over shortly, you’ll have new skills! And I can almost guarantee you’ll love the taste and quality of your own foods better than commercially produced cans and packages.

Get access to training, canning advice, kitchen tips, and support to fill your pantry and table with home-canned foods. Includes video tutorials, companion printables, community access, and much more.

Does any of this sound like you?

  • You want to know where your food comes from. 
  • You have a garden and food is spilling off the counters… you can’t eat it all fast enough. 
  • You remember eating home-canned foods as a kid, and want that for YOUR family! 
  • You want that self-sufficient feeling, but are stuck in place by fear.  
  • You are confused by all the conflicting canning information. So much information! 
  • You are frustrated with your fear of your canner!


Are you nodding? I figured some of this might resonate.  

If you are stuck in place by fear, you are in the right place. 

Nobody should be afraid to produce and preserve their own food!  

Get unstuck! There is not one reason you can’t preserve your own food! No, not one.  

Simply Canning School is going to dispel fears and myths and get you started right.

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… will it be healthy? Will it be preserved safely?

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

Picture this.

Your family seated around the table eating produce direct from your garden or from a local farmers market… in the middle of winter! 

You, recognizing bad advice about canning practices and avoiding mistakes before they happen.

Your kids knowing what real food is like! The time to get started is now.  

Simply Canning School: A place created especially for beginning canners to get you started.  

Step-by-step video lessons and in a flash…  you are now a Confident Canner.

"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."

Good Food, Good Nutrition

Food fresh from the garden or farmers market is one essential step to good health and nutrition.

Home Canning is a method of saving that nutritious food for later seasons. Fill your own jars and know what exactly you are eating. Have the satisfaction of knowing just what hands have handled your food and exactly what is in your jars.  

You will have a fantastic, soul-renewing feeling of satisfaction knowing you provided for your family yourself.  

 Canning is about:

  • the health of your family
  • the satisfaction of a self-sufficiency journey 
  • real food 

So many people want to start canning. But they are stuck. They don’t know where to start.  

Home Canning Classes

Online tutorials to access at your own pace. No set time you have to be in class! Access from any device.

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.


I'm a simple woman in love with her hardworking husband, and mom of 4 sons. In my mission to keep up with the appetites of my crew, gardening and home preserving food has proved to be a great way to provide nutritious, simple, delicious meals. I'm also the founder of Simply Canning, which has served hundreds and thousands of people through my book and Facebook page.

I'd love to walk with you on this trail of learning how to "put up food" as our grandmothers might have said.

I hope to see you in class!

"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."

Yes, I want to start canning with confidence!

"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. "
