Whether you’re saving home-grown fruits and vegetables for a rainy day or you’re building up an emergency food stockpile in case of disasters, knowing how to can is an important skill to have for any homesteader and prepper. This form of food preservation can easily prevent spoilage and allow you to keep your food edible for long-term storage. While the process of canning seems quite overwhelming, certain foods are much easier to can than others – this makes them perfect for those who are just starting their journey as homesteaders or preppers.

It takes a lot of time and effort to get into the groove of canning but the rewards are definitely worth it. In SHTF, throwing out fresh foods because you can’t eat them before they expire is a big waste of the back-breaking work you’ve done to acquire them. With the knowledge of canning, any leftovers can easily be saved for later. But before you get down to the nitty-gritty of canning, you need to know which foods will be accessible at your current skill level. (Related: The easiest foods to can.)
