    Default Canning the best route?

    So I've been a big canner for the last few years -- it's become an obsession to 'stockpile' food..haha. I've decided to start a huge garden this year to offset some of my bulk cost at the state's farmer market. My question isthis though -- I've recently been introduced to freeze dried foods and I'mwondering if I should put so much of my time and effort into canning/dehydrating when it's just as easy to buy already freeze dried stuff for my pantry?!

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    I vote for doing your own preserving. Item 1: You know where it came
    from and what's in it. Item 2: You get the enjoyment of growing and
    preserving your own food. Item 3: You get to brag about it on this
    newsgroup. Item 4: If you have family and friends you can gift with your
    homemade stuff you get a lot of satisfaction from their praise.

    I've been off salt and most sugar for years, therefore I make most of my
    own jams, jellies, and preserves. Helps keep my blood sugar and
    cholesterol levels more normal.

    Doing it yourself gets stuff you cant get in shops, and is sometimes
    enjoyable. For tomatoes though, I just buy them.
