My bucket list keeps getting longer and longer. As time goes by, I feel the need to explore. I want to visit new places, learn new things, and experience life to the fullest. Paris is one of the places I would love to visit. There are so many places to go and things to do. I want to learn about the culture, the food (yes please) and of course the history.

Canning In The Twentieth Century
Have you ever canned your own vegetables or made your own pickles? What about soups and jellies? Have you ever tried to make these homemade and then jar them up to enjoy months down the road?
Canning is a piece of our cultural history that is slowly fading away. Technological advancement and human ingenuity provide us with an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables year round even if they are not in season. Because of the ease of availability, we are slowing losing an imperative piece of our culture.
Canning is easier than you think. It doesn’t take a lot of equipment and know how. All you need is a big enough pot to submerge some glass jars. Of course, you can buy the $10 canning kit at the store too, but it is not necessary. I canned for years using a large sauce pot and my metal broccoli steamer. The concept is the same regardless of the tools you use.
