Canning is a great hobby and you are rewarded with yummy goodies when you are finished. But it also takes planning and work. So why should you try canning if you haven't already? Here are the top 10 reasons to join the canning crowd.

It's a great way to bond with family. Whether you are helping your grandma or mom in the kitchen or passing down your own information to your kids, you can share family recipes and special memories together.

It's more fun with a team. You can do it on your own, but it's more fun and easier when you are canning with a friend. It's a fun way to enjoy a day of making jam or applesauce or pickles with a friend and it's easier with a helping hand.

It's a great stress reliever that's productive. Many people enjoy the process of canning. It takes a couple of steps and you have to pay attention. It can take your mind off of stress in your life.

Canning is a great way to share your talents with friends and family. Whether you are giving your goodies as gifts or just sharing some garden treats with the neighbors, it's a wonderful way to share.

When you can from your own garden, you know where your food is coming from and you control the quality!

Canning makes for quicker, easier meals. When you stockpile vegetables and even meat, it comes in handy for quick meals when you are in a hurry.

Jams and jellies make perfect birthday and Christmas gifts! It's something you put your heart into and it's much better (and more delicious) than a store bought gift.

You don't waste as much food! Sometimes eating everything in the garden can be a challenge when you have a good year - so this helps cut down on waste!

You can save a lot of money by making your own jam, salsa, pickles, etc.

You get to enjoy your favorite foods all year long - from pickles to tomatoes! Those fresh veggies help get you through the winter days!
