I can remember over the years canning with my mother. We have made grape jelly, apricots, and I can clearly remember a case of exploding pumpkins. I have a sudden yearn to take up canning for my own little family. I have no supplies, but that will not deter me. I think I am going to start looking around for the necessities so I can be prepared for the next harvesting season that starts in May. Wish me luck.
