What’s the difference between pressure canning and water bath canning? I don’t have a pressure canner, can I can my chicken in a water bath? How long do you need to process meats for? Can I make jam without pectin? What is pectin? What is the difference between jam, jelly and preserve? The number of questions can make your head spin. Some of the information is so important that if you don’t know the answers, you can actually hurt yourself or your family. Canning is an important life skill, not just for preppers, but for everyone who aspires to give their families healthier foods.

Stocking Up – A basic of Preparedness
Host: Lynna “The Other Side… A Preppers Path”
Stocking up. Stocking up! Or Stocking Up? Punctuation changes intent for sure, are we making a statement we are doing something stocking up, or exclaiming we’ve got our stocking up! Or asking if we are stocking up? It’s a broad term and a good question which planted the seed for a short series of episodes on the Other Side of a Preppers Path. These two little words are in fact a basis for a lifestyle of preparedness. “How so you may ask?” A question the Other Side of a Preppers Path intends to answer in a series of episodes all about Stocking Up and the Preparedness Lifestyle. The Lifestyle that creates Peace, Power and ultimately Joy. Sunday December 15th we begin the trek along this path at the beginning, we will talk about how you begin and the different side roads stocking up takes.. For instance do we need to stock up? Shouldn’t we take stock first? What do we stock up on? Just a few of the broad spectrum of things “Stocking Up”encompasses. Read More→
It’s harvest time folks, and for a lot of us that means canning season has begun. I’ve done plenty of blog posts about water bath canning high acid foods, so I figured it was about time to take a look at pressure canning. Pressure canning is great for putting up all the produce that is coming out of your garden, or taking advantage of all the great deals that we are seeing at farmers markets and supermarkets this time of year.
If you have ever thought pressure canning was dangerous due to the possibility of food poisoning, or even having a canner blow up on you, rest assured, I’ll explain how to avoid these problems and make your preserved food safe, or at least how to tell when it’s not.
This will be a two part podcast as I first explain about the tried, true, and scientifically proven methods of canning. Then, I’ll go into some advice about avoiding a few of the mistakes I’ve made, and how to safely deviate from the approved books and start canning your own favorite recipes.
Also, with a deviation of my habit of avoiding political issues, I’ll have a few minutes to spare to talk about Canada’s role in the Syrian issue. We all have a part in this crises and I will share with you my thoughts and those of many Canadians.
