Benefits of Pressure Canned Food

Enjoy pressure canned food all year long by preserving! Whether you have a glut in home-grown produce during the peak of season, or found some great deals from local growers/stores, there are LOTS of ways you can preserve fresh vegetables without sugar and vinegar, and you can safely preserve meat by pressure canning too!
10 Reasons to Preserve Your Own Food
  1. Long term storage of fresh produce (12 months+) without needing a refrigerator or freezer.
  2. Environmentally friendly - using seasonally grown and locally sourced fresh produce, re-use preserving jars, reducing food packaging and reducing food miles.
  3. Save money by buying in bulk and seasonally.
  4. Flavour! Home canned food won't contain artificial preservatives, BPA or other artificial ingredients.
  5. Convenience - ready to serve in minutes.
  6. Community involvement - both the canning process and sharing with family, friends and neighbours. Teach skills to the next generation.
  7. Gifts - nothing beats a jar of pressure canned soup or stew for someone to enjoy :)
  8. Prepare for emergencies and/or illness.
  9. Personal satisfaction. No more packet mixes or supermarket brands – making your own is cheaper, easy to do and we have lots of ideas sharing how to use canned food in recipes.
  10. Learn more skills i.e. how to use all of the ingredients and reducing food wastage. For example: vegetables – pressure can vegetables in water or stock, boil peels/scraps with meat bones to make stock.
