These 22 Preserving and Canning Recipes are the best!! Preserving and canning has been around forever. When food was scarce, it was nice to have something at hand from the growing season.
Pickling has taken on a new resurgence in the culinary world. Restaurants are very proud of their housemade pickling methods and recipes. With the advent of charcuterie being so popular many establishments like to embellish their meat and cheese boards with their own stars. Making some items housemade has become very popular.
You can get in on this trend too by making some easy homemade refrigerator pickles to start and then maybe move up to canning some local produce like tomatoes. There is nothing better than our homemade tomatoes in our recipes all winter long. We love to can and do so every year!!
I have knocked the list down into 4 categories, pickles, veggies, fruit and miscellaneous. Have fun trying a bunch of these!!

Using fruits in jams and jellies require different techniques again. Some recipes require liquid pectin and some a pectin powder. Each way you get amazing results. I so look forward to doing some jams and jellies again soon!

This category gives you great gifts for the holidays that you can make well in advance and store them away. A jar of savory jelly or mustard is always a welcome hostess gift!! The Jalapeno Jam uses another technique with lemons to make the jam thick WITHOUT the use of pectin! Kind of like a delicious science project.
