78+ Canning Recipes

This collection of canning recipes will help you preserve healthy food for the whole year!

Home food preservation has reached a new heyday as people are taking control over their food supply again and embarking on self-sufficiency.

Growing your own food is the best first step in shortening your food chain supply.

Gardening provides so many amazing benefits – nutrient-dense, organic foods, reduced distance from farm to fork, no exploited labor, and the very act of gardening alone is a therapeutic work out!

Preserving the harvest is the perfect way to ensure access to healthy food all year long. When crops come in, they tend to all ripen at the same time. I can only eat so many ears of corn before I get sick!

Freezing, dehydrating and canning are all excellent ways to preserve what you grow.

Even if you don’t have a big garden, a lot of times the vendors at the farmers market will sell you produce in bulk for the purposes of canning.

If you’re just getting started canning, I have some awesome resources for you:

Low acid foods such as green beans and meat will have to be processed with a pressure canner to ensure safety.

But high acid foods such as homemade jam and pickles can be processed with a boiling water canner.

Some of these are water bath canning recipes and some are pressure canning recipes, so if this is your first time canning, I would stick with water bath canning.

My friend Melissa K Norris has a complete Home Canning Course that goes over the correct canning process to process all kinds of food and fresh produce.

The important thing is to follow the Ball Blue Book for canning times or the national center for home food preservation.

They have done the research to determine how long each easy recipe needs to be processed for health and safety.

The final product can also be packaged and sold or given away as great gifts.

Now that you’re ready to can all the things, here’s a complete list of easy canning recipes for all your canning needs.

All you need is one great recipe!

Canning Supplies

If you’re new to canning you’ll need:

  • canning jars (pint jars or quart jars)
  • a large pot (for water bath canning)
  • a pressure canner (NOT a pressure cooker – for pressure canning)
  • lids and rings

Best Canning Recipes

Apple Canning Recipes

Apples are a great way to start your canning journey with. They can be water bath canned because they are already naturally high in sugar and acid.

The variety of apple will change the texture and taste of the preserves, but most apples can be used interchangeably.
