Hi, I’m Tracey.

I’ve been canning for more than a decade and have made my share of mistakes. And I’ve learned a few things from those mistakes.

I was terrified of the pressure canner. It stayed in the box and on the shelf for several years before I had the nerve to just give it a try.

Once I did, there was no turning back.

I want to give you that freedom too. That feeling of knowing you have food on the shelf and that it’s made just the way you want it and free from all the chemicals that go into the store bought foods these days.

You’ll be able to can food without chemical preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors and sweeteners. Nothing but natural and nutritious food for your family.

I want you to have that confident feeling that when things get weird again, you have food on the shelf and you don’t have to panic.

In this workshop…

  • You’ll learn about all the pieces and parts of the pressure canner and what they are for.
  • You’ll learn about the water bath canner.
  • We’ll go over the reasons you use a pressure canner vs. a water bath canner.
  • We’ll go through the process of canning in the pressure canner and the water bath canner so you will see both done, start to finish.
  • You’ll have a chance to ask questions and take notes, so you’ll feel confident when you’re ready to go home and try it for yourself.

If you’re ready to put the fear behind you, ready to make and can your own food, free from artificial and chemical anything, you won’t want to miss this.

Enrollment is just $50.00 per person.

But hurry since space is limited to 10 persons per class.

See you there!
