THE CHALLENGE

www.foodpreserving.org is the result of my personal challenge to can (preserve) every day for 365 days and create a resource for everyone to learn how to safely preserve food. I began my challenge on May 21, 2012 and completed my year of daily canning on May 20, 2013. I created 386 recipes and canned 1629 jars in those 12 months! I expanded my knowledge of preserving, and met so many wonderful growers and fellow canners across the world. My personal challenge rules were simple: can something every day (or use something I previously canned), document photos of each step, share my resources and my recipes, and provide the public with feedback and suggestions to inspire others! 
             
Food Preserving is about following what is in season for your region, growing your own fruits and vegetables and visiting your local orchards and farmers' markets. You are also bottling something free from artificial preservatives and saving money by preserving fresh produce and learning a life skill that you can pass on to the next generation. PLUS, jars of homemade goodies make FANTASTIC gifts for your friends and family! 
    
Whether you can every day like I did, - or weekly, monthly or seasonally - I hope you leave this website feeling inspired to give home canning a go!
