What is canning? Why can your own food? How do you start canning and what tools do you need? This is a comprehensive learning to can video that attempts to give a basic understanding of home canning using both a water bath canner and a pressure canner. We cover several types of canning methods, what is approved and not approved by the USDA, how to read canning recipes, and common questions and problems.
