What is the Best Canner For Beginners?
Are you getting ready to start canning for the first time? Me too! I’ve watched grandma can but never tried it on my own. I really need to start out simple and then work my way up. I started looking on my favorite online store to see what they had to offer and I found some really interesting things and now I’m excited to give it a try!
What is the best pressure canner to buy
If your just starting out preserving your own food. I would recommend Buying This One! It’s not hard to use, nothing fancy. You just put the jars in boiling water so the lids will seal. Now you can’t preserve green beans in it but you can make jelly preserves and tomatoes.
I’m sure you can do more, just check in your canning book on what you can preserve in a hot bath.
Don’t Forget To Get a Recipe Book!
I Love this book it’s the only book you need to start canning, it’s stocked full of tips and recipes. The reviews are amazing. It’s made by Ball, you’ve heard of them I’m sure. ;-). I have a copy of my grandma’s canning book and it was a Ball booklet.
Look no farther if you interested in learning how to can safely. This book is massive over 400 pages of recipes and tips to get you started canning on the right foot.
One lady said she started with some grapes her hubby brought home and made jelly for the first time and it was all thanks to this book that helped her get started. Like I said before you can make jelly easily in the Granite one above.
My Favorite One If You Want To Make Green Beans!
My Favorite one first! This Pressure canner is one recommended by Amazon. It is a top seller and has the best customer reviews. It is 23 quarts which means it will hold 7 quart jars.
Less time canning if I picked something smaller then I would be working much longer hours over the stove. I also like that it is heavy duty aluminum.
It is extra large, has instruction, recipe book and it has a 12 year warranty on it. I can also use it as a water canner for my tomatoes. Two for one! My Grandma used this brand back in the 70’s, so it must be good if there still in business!
Homesteading with a Crew To Feed Get This One
This one has a 5 star rating! And would be perfect for the die hart homesteader that wants to cook with the best quality. It’s a bit pricey but it will pay for itself in the first year.
Top notch quality and it will hold up to 7 quart jars or 19 pints. If you’re going to buy something that you will be using for years to come. Why not buy the best that you can afford the first time. Right?
I really hope this has helped you get the best canner for a beginner who wants to learn how to preserve something from their garden this year. Let me know how it worked out for you and tell us what you canned. I’d love to hear from you.
