Home canning is a skill I learned from my Mother-in-law. We had so much fun playing with different recipes and using up all our garden produce, while the kids played outside or watched old Western movies with Pops. Since she isn't with us anymore, canning is one of many activities that reminds me of her and something I love sharing with others.
