I preserved some strawberry jam in March, and will be adding more items to the pantry this season. I have been trying to fill the pantry with all the items we use and could use in case of an emergency or just to be prepared. With the way the economy is going, and how large my family is I need all the help I can get. I do enjoy canning and have been teaching the girls how to. I will be posting tips and such on preparedness and stocking up for a rainy day!
