Suggestions for a paranoid mother please :)
I am wanting to freeze and can as much as possible for this coming winter. I don't trust the food from the grocery stores much anymore, and want to eat our organically grown food. I'm "hoping" that my seeds aren't chemically altered.... (reasoning for my paranoia is all the diseases/cancers now days with all the pesticides/chemicals used in and on your food...yadda yadda yadda.....wnating to make sure that I don't create botulism and poison my family)
I've only canned a few times, and that was several years ago. Can you suggest what is better for which, freezing corn, greenbeans...canning tomatoes, sauces, etc?
Right now all I own is a vintage hot water bath. I know I will need to purchase a pressure canner/cooker. Not sure which one to buy. I've been told not to purchase an aluminum pressure canner as they warp and do not read correct temps???
Any and all suggestions/advise is VERY MUCH appreciated!
Thanks so much!
