About Simply Canning

Simply Canning Logo

Sharon Peterson, the woman behind Simply Canning, began her canning journey for the same reason many of us have; gardening and home preserving food proved to be a great way to provide nutritious, simple, delicious meals and provides an alternative to the many preservative-laden commercial products found on the shelf of the local mega markets.

Sharon peterson-ResizedSimply Canning is a great resource for information on canning safety, recipes, canning tips, how-to’s, and product reviews. The information is valid for newbie & veteran canners. The articles are easy to read and understand; ‘it’s like being taught canning techniques by your best friend.’

We think some of these articles are really useful!

We especially like these recipes from Sharon.

This Canning Quick Start is free and is a great place to start if you don’t know where to begin. But even more importantly she released the second edition of her Simply Canning Book!

What we really love about Sharon’s book is, because she doesn’t have a line of products she’s trying to promote within the book, she is able to offer a more objective look at products and tactics used for those looking to learn preserving.
