Tutorial: Water Bath Canning 101. Photo -Adobe Stock (under license)
We’ve discovered an easy-to-follow guide for anyone new to water bath canning. It’s amazing to see just how many different foods can be preserved with a canner – and there are some recipes in the tutorial to get you started. The link to the full tutorial is after our introduction.
Much of the food we find in the stores is preserved by canning – and it can last for many years if it is canned in the right way. The water bath method relies on heat to kill organisms that would otherwise cause food to spoil.
In modern times, we often take for granted the fact that fresh food is available all year round – this can only happen because crop growing seasons vary in different parts of the world and there is an industrialized transport system to supply out-of-season foods anywhere that there is a demand.
Until the arrival of global commerce, it was common practice to can food at home – however canning is now having a resurgence for many reasons. More people are becoming aware of the importance of eating fresh foods that have been allowed to ripen naturally before harvesting – and these foods have advantages because a lot of the fruits in the supermarkets have been picked early so that they can remain in good condition for transport and storage. The practice of canning is also popular with survivalists, preppers and homesteaders living off the land.
More of us are keen to reduce the unsustainable practice of shipping so much food around the world, or to eat food that we know has been grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers – so many are growing more at home and trying to “eat local” and environmentally responsible.
A large scale disaster could cut off regular food supplies, leaving the stores empty within a short time and the fragile nature of world politics and economics could cause similar problems; so we can protect ourselves from these to a degree by storing some food! Whatever your reasons, canning food is an easy and valuable skill to learn.
If you grow your own food, you’ll know that most fruit and vegetable crops are only around for a short period of time. Having a way to preserve them means that you can grow larger amounts and your produce will be available throughout the year.
When preparing food for canning, try to minimise the time that foods are cooked as some nutrient and vitamin levels will be reduced by prolonged heating.

During summer harvesting, it can be uncomfortable to use a canner indoors – you could end up turning your house into a sauna! It’s worth thinking about doing your canning over a fire outdoors, please use this link to find out more: http://readynutrition.com/resources/off-grid-canning-techniques_26072012/
This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
What REALLY Happens When You Bury a Shipping Container? (Hint: It's A Bit Crazy...)
Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?
Watch the video to see what happens:
I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
