Default Canning for the Average Family in 1941



Someone gave me this link or told me about, I think it may have been jfred. Canning for the Average Family in 1941



I had to go look and see how I was comparing. Pretty close I think.



Ive put up quite a bit this year (over 1300 jars plus dehydrated, frozen, etc. (only 5 jars away as of this morning from 1400 jars). Our pantry is bursting at the seams. tally post here at WUC: http://www.weusecoupons.com/upload/2803488-post2.html


I am still canning for the year too. My canners really never get put away completely as I can almost all year round what with putting up jars of beans, and more to fill those bare spots on the shelves back up.


Anyone still canning?

I just started to try canning. I was able to put up a dozen jars last year 4 tomatoes and the rest was Mulberry Jelly/Jam. This year my tomatoes plants haven't produced yet. For some reason I keep getting blossom end drop. I am planning on putting up a few jars of applesauce over the next few months....

Foggy -- Good site, I love how she broke down how much self space would be needed. Also that was just veggies and fruit, no mention of meat. I am thinking back in the forties men hunted, fished and country people had smoke houses to preserve meat. I really enjoy reading articles like this. Thanks for posting!

Oh, my canner is not getting put away either. As I get more organized, I am starting soups and canning also baked beans and few other meal type things like spg sauce with the meat in it. Love my freezers but I would feel better knowing I had plenty of grap and go food canned in case of emergencies.

Love the post--keep them going!!

I really want to start canning soooo bad. I posted a wanted ad on Craigslist and Freecycle to see if anyone wants to offload some canning equipment. Foggy, every time I see what you've put up I get starry eyed...

My mom mentioned something about counties having areas where you can book and use a kitchen and canning equipment for free. This was in Wisconsin so I'm going to try and research it here in MO. Anyone heard of this?

Thanks for the article!

Short story... we have been repairing our home from the April 29 Hailstorms that did $25,000 in damage to our house. We are Tweaking repairs with home improving, installed a generator and running a gas line on Monday to get a fireplace blower- heater and ta- da! My new gas stove. I had a cooktop, very unreliable for controlling - regulating heat. It was the worst stove ever. I am looking forward to gas cooking my pressure cookers and canners. I can't wait to can meat and soups!

Shhhh! Be va-wee, va-wee quiet. Dee is shopping for bargains!


Lucky 2 B A Wuckie!

Here are web sites/links for canning locations--Mormon canneries included--enjoy! I will add more info later. Also, if you are interested in grocery salvage stores/produce auctions, I will post info too. In many Mennonite/Amish areas, you can attend a produce auction and buy in bulk even if you are not a wholesale or restaurant owner but an individual or family.

Home Storage Center Locations (Mormon site for canning locations.)

http://frugalliving.about.com/od/can...-Locations.htm (Community Canneries that are nationwide links.)

http://nchfp.uga.edu/index.html (University of Georgia's site/info for National Center for Home Food Preservation with links.)

http://www.extremebargains.net/store...Directory.html (Independent Discount & Salvage Grocery Stores' nationwide site/links.)

For produce auctions, just Google to search since there are so many nationwide. Use PRODUCE AUCTIONS for the words to Google info.

I go to produce auctions and I have gotten great deals for produce. But one warning learn when the best day to go because Fridays everything goes sky high because of the farmers market people. Some markets allow produce grown from others and the one in my town does not you have grow everything yourself. Tuesday cases of tomatos had gone for $3 a box. Were as on Friday the same box went for over $25 a box. It's a great way to get bulk produce to can and freeze. I plan on going in the early fall for tomatos to can I can get Roma's and canning tomato's for sauces.
