Canning in South Africa?

sarahlineFebruary 4, 2014

Anyone canning in South Africa?
I've been canning all my life in the Midwest USA, but am now looking for a canning community in northern South Africa.

Where can I buy a second hand (aka, not a new Chinese made) pressure canner and several dozen jars?

Thanks in advance

We had one member post from South Africa some years ago but it was clear from the challenges she faced that home pressure canning there was a rare phenomenon.

IIRC, she actually ordered an All-American stateside, which given the cost of shipping, represented a significant investment.

Having read the above posting, I am new to the canning fraternity and live in Gauteng (South Africa) Hoping to find other fellow South Africans in order to exchange notes on Home canning?
