Three Tips for Canning Safety

can jar labels

3. Label, label, label

I don’t mean labeling with what’s in the jar (though that’s probably a good idea, too). Make sure you note the date that you canned your goods, and try to use them up within a year.

Do any of you seasoned canners have tips to share? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

  1. I really love this post. You broke down the key points wonderfully. Hopefully people will feel less overwhelmed about canning knowing there are just a few steps to follow to be successful. I’d love to see a post w/ downloadable labels like the one you pictured… that would be fab.
