New to Canning?

New to canning and don't know where to start?

Or are you already boiling water canning and ready to start pressure canning?

I will walk you through the process, step by step!

A lot of people feel intimidated by pressure canners and are even a little afraid of them. You're not alone! The fact is, you SHOULD be a little afraid of them! There are some valid reasons to be afraid of pressure canners.

Worried you're going to make your family sick? If you don't process your low acid foods in a pressure canner for a specified amount of time and under a certain amount of pressure, your canned foods are NOT safe to eat and can cause botulism poisoning.

So how do you know how to can safely? By learning from an expert. I'll take you by the hand through the entire process.

That is why I created these courses, to take all that fear away. I LOVE teaching people how to can. It's one thing to read about how to use a pressure canner in an instruction manual. I will lead you through the entire process, step by step, for EVERY recipe. Start on any recipe you like and you will find all the information you need to can SAFELY and EASILY.

Do you need a pressure canner to prepare all these recipes? No! Many can be prepared with a boiling water canner, but all can be prepared with a pressure canner (pressure canners can be used for both boiling water canning and pressure canning).

These self-paced tutorials will show you how to prepare and can a variety of foods.

What will you learn how to can? Check out the course list below. From chili to sweet and sour sauce, from nectarine plum jam to pickled jalapeno peppers, there are currently 60 courses to choose from, and you will have access to all of them!

You will always have access to all of them any time you want. Courses do NOT have to be completed in any certain order, all contain complete canning instructions.

Will these recipes save you time and money? You bet! I've spent YEARS perfecting these recipes. You will find many recipes online that are not safe for canning, but you won't be able to tell that just looking at the recipe, unless you know what you are looking for.

And not every recipe is created equally. I've tested many, many recipes in my home kitchen over the years, and I am only sharing with you the best, tried and true recipes. Looking for the BEST salsa recipe? I have you covered! You will never have to find another salsa recipe again.

  • Instructional video (approx. 10 minutes each)
  • Canning recipe
  • Supplies list

Money-Back Guarantee:

I have been canning for more than 30 years, and I am excited to share my knowledge of canning with you. I look forward to connecting with you!

"Thank you for offering this option to learn. I’m working with a Healthy Food Coalition and we’ve identified a need for workshops on learning to garden, prepare healthy meals, and preserve food by freezing &/or canning. The pace, especially for the first time canner, is well timed and all the details are important also. I hope this program is very successful."

"I just enrolled in the "lifetime" courses package. I'm such a chicken when it comes to canning. But, I'm going to try to plunge in when my garden comes to harvest this year (another thing I'm not terribly great at). Thank you for making your courses affordable!”
