    PLANNING CANNING (link)

    If you are just now thinking about joining the trend to can food this summer, start by checking your equipment and supplies. Proper equipment in good condition is required for safe, high quality home canned food. Planning ahead can save you time, money, and frustration with home canning. Make it a happy, successful canning season by getting prepared before your harvest is ready.

    Good advice. I have a small garden this year (peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers) and hope to try my hand at some canning, particularly salsa and pickles. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! Also, has anyone ever tried dehydrating tomatoes for tomato powder?

    Yep! The only thing about tomato powder is that it can be extremely hydrophilic (loves moisture) and can absorb it from atmospheric humidity and harden into a lump in the jar if you're not careful. It's the same thing with onion powder.

    Ooooo...you make me want to drag out my canning supplies! I haven't canned in a few years now, and sorely miss it...

    There are sooooooooo many great recipes in the db!

    What got me more serious about it was the astronomical prices for bitty jars of preserves at the store. I haven't bought one in years, now.

    I probably do less of the "preserves" (ie jams, jellies, spreads) canning than fruits (apples, cherries, etc...when I can get my hands on them!), tomatoes and pressure-cooking (meats, soups, etc.)

    I need to get some stuff done for our county fair. I keep telling myself, every year, that I'm going to do it...never have. icon_redface.gif
