Canning & Food Preservation
Gather up the family and get going in the kitchen for fun food processing. You'll be able to enjoy the sweet tastes of summer even in the coldest of winter months with your new favorite home canning tools from Smith & Edwards.
Who doesn't love a jar of home-canned peaches? Or pickled zucchini on a toasted sandwich with lightly steaming roast beef?
Now you can make your own canned goodies and food storage with the best food preservation supplies around. Mason jars for canning, Food Vacuum Sealers, even dehydrating equipment so you can make your own jerky and dried fruit snacks - we've got you covered.
YOU CAN DO IT - we'll help you preserve the summer's harvest, just the way you remember Grandma doing it. Maybe with a couple upgrades! Use a waterbath canner for high-acid foods like tomatoes. A pressure canner can handle any produce, and it's the most-recommended method for low-acid produce like pickles, cherries, pears, and meat.
