Since I've begun this blog, I've posted assorted things about eating local, planting a garden and building a compost bin. I have not canned fruits or vegetables since I was a kid. Even then, I was a mere observer to the process, which was filled with warnings and old wives' tales. I grew up convinced that if I did something wrong, we were doomed to the curses of many generations, or at the very least food poisoning. I eschewed the risk in favor of frozen or prepackaged goods.
