The Resurgence of Canning
Canning and preserving, activities once popular with your grandmother are now becoming popular again. For this resurgence, we can thank the growing demand for fresh local foods, the interest in eliminating and reducing our carbon foot print and, mostly, our good neighbour “the farmer” selling a great selection of fine fruits and vegetables from their own farm outlet or at your local farmers’ market.
Canning allows you to enjoy the harvest bounty all year long and you don’t have to be a seasoned canner to be able to do this. Bernardin, an advertiser in this Farm Fresh Reference Guide, has been selling canning supplies for over 100 years and has noted a significant increase in the number of people learning how to can.
