Canning to Amateur Radio
Host: Gary and Brenna “The Road Less Traveled
Join us for tonight’s outing on “The Road Less Traveled.” On this excursion we’ll continue focusing on some of the intricacies of Prepping from our perspectives with an emphasis on psychological preparedness being quite important to our overall efforts.
GGsBoo will discuss pressure cookers, the canning process, the difference between water bathing and pressure canning. GaryL will expand the previous discussion on Pythagoras and Tesla by having some fun with numbers and amateur radio, how it all relates to frequency, energy, and vibration!
These and more topics will be extensively treated as the trip continues from week to week as there is far too much to cover in a single hour, and much of what will be discussed is of an evolving and dynamic nature. Therefore, we ask all the listeners to consider the information and share your thoughts with us and with each other so that we may all expand our knowledge bases.

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.

“Following this summer’s drought, the price of animal feed has soared, as have the prices for hay. In order to cope, many ranchers are selling off all, or portions of their livestock. Likely, you’ve read the reports that meat prices are going to drop as we head into winter. Get it while you can, because when the sell-off is finished, prices are anticipated to rise dramatically, as demand will exceed supply. There’s no better time to make sure you have all the supplies you need in order to can meat, and take advantage of the temporary, brief drop in meat prices. Katzcradul of “The Homestead Honey Hour” is prepared to answer your questions and to discuss a variety of ways to preserve meat, and offer suggestions of ways to store meat, you might not have considered.
