LH 17: Getting the Most From Your Canning Efforts

Welcome to Episode #17 of the Living Homegrown Podcast!

This episode is all about getting the most from your canning efforts.

In other words, I explain about canning yields with tips on getting the best yields possible.

You learn:

  • It is you or the recipe?
  • The two main reasons there can be such a huge discrepancy in canning yields
  • Two units of measurement and why one leads to variation
  • What you should pay careful attention to in the recipe instructions
  • Why cooking times vary from season to season
  • What I do to prep ahead of time for yield variation (and you should do this too!)
