I have found some great canning modalities on this site: smart-cooking-tips.info Check them out! I hope I was of help.
canning and preserving is very old way of saving food, and with help of this now a days we can save our food from being wasted.
Canning is an important, safe method for preserving food if practiced properly. The canning process involves placing foods in jars or similar containers and heating them to a temperature that destroys micro-organisms that cause food to spoil. During this heating process air is driven out of the jar and as it cools a vacuum seal is formed. This vacuum seal prevents air from getting back into the product bringing with it contaminating micro-organisms.
It's important to remember that the heating process can overcook some foods, therefore some things aren't the best choice for canning.
I am preserving food by freezing it.I think this is a old way of preserving food.But i have not any more idea to preserve food.
Canning is a best way to preserve the things because some things are not be preserve in the freezer.The things which are preserve in canning be saved for long time.
Canning for me is getting the quality of product I want along with how I want it. I can green mint pears and cinnamon red pears. Place one half cut red or green pear on a pile of small curd cottage cheese at Christmas time. Put half marachino cherry at the bottom of a green or plain pear half or add a green gum drop to the bottom of a red pear. You can add more, but they look like Christmas bells. No preservatives or pesticides from our pear tree.
