Keep The Summer Flavor Year Round

Preserving food is a great way to extend the bounty of the growing season.

Imagine -- it only takes one night of getting together with friends or neighbors who also want to preserve the summer berries to end up with jars that can replace a year's worth of store bought jellies and jams.

All it takes is someone having the knowledge of the procedures and safety rules to follow.

The ladies in this video speak of the joys of teaching this time honored skill to others.

Canning and preserving is not just a quaint hobby anymore, it is an important step in being able to keep more local produce in your pantry year round.

Once you know how to do it, you can teach others. We can all be bartering skills and a few jars of preserves while we're at it!
