Short video showing the basics of pressure canning green beans. One of the goals to work for with self-sufficiency, homesteading and/or preparedness is growing and putting up (preserving) enough food to last from one season to the next. This is how the pioneers and early settlers did it. They grew enough in the spring and summer not only for fresh eating during that time period, but enough to put up to keep them through the winter and till the next harvest. That should be our goal as we work towards self-sufficiency. Every little bit counts!
