Pressure Canning FoodsIf you have been reading for a while, you know that I love food preservation just as much as I love to cook. There is something about shopping in my own pantry and freezer that makes me slightly giddy with joy.  Over the years, I have written books on all sorts of food preservation: Canning and Preserving for Dummies, Canning and Preserving All in One, Fermenting for Dummies. Each one is filled with good ideas and recipes for creating homemade meals from the farm kitchen.

I never could understand why the art of pressure canning wasn’t as popular as it once was. I think it fell out of favor when people had access to frozen foods and that meant a lot less work. The rise of convenience foods meant the decline of doing things ourselves.

Pressure canning is an important part of my everyday life, and I am excited to be bringing you another book on the subject. I am working on a  book titled Modern Pressure Canning, and it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

It’s not just a traditional canning recipe book, and I will be sharing many of the fun and funky recipes that help me be creative cook throughout the year.  I’m excited to see what you think, and will be blogging my journey from recipe box to full color book. Stay tuned!
