I think I can... I think I can...

It's a lost art...


I think I can because my mom did.

She cans because her mom did, etc.

Can I buy it cheaper, already canned and ready to eat off of the store shelves?


Does it taste as good?


Does bringing home already canned food encourage my kids to eat fresh fruit to their hearts' content when there are bushels of it waiting to be canned at home?


Are there treasured memories pictured in a scrapbook somewhere of your grandmother buying canned fruit at the store?

Probably not.

I have pictures of my grandma canning.

Look at all those peaches! She had 13 kids for Pete's sake! What a woman she was and still is.

I have pictures somewhere of my kids helping me, and my sister has pictures of us kids helping my mom.

So I thought for posterity I would take a picture of the canning I did today:

And the canning I will be doing tomorrow...

And the next day...

Can I take back all the sweet things I said about canning and give up now while I am ahead?


I think I can... I think I can... I think I can...

ha that is a great picture of grandma, she looks super proud! And no I don't can, I never have and never will:) I think it would stress me out, but I do freeze every once and a while, but even with that I'd rather just buy frozen stuff from Costco, it is why I am so stress free:) JK
