Steam Canning

Canning in Half the Time: The Fastest Canning for New & Experienced Preservers

Canning in Half the Time:

For New & Experienced Preservers

This course will teach you how to take advantage of the new development in the canning world:

The Steam Canner!

This is the fastest, lightest way to can. Period.

Imagine being able to preserve fresh berries into jam- in just minutes- to be enjoyed months later.

Think about serving your kids little glass jars of wholesome, organic applesauce and crisp, healthy dilly beans that you made yourself in almost no time at all!

Wouldn't it be awesome to preserve pickled veggies and fruit butters that were kid-friendly and hors d'oeuvres plate ready?

What about having your favorite foods ready for wherever the road or wind takes you? Allergen-free, shelf-stable for up to a year, in super-sturdy mason jars:

Canning with a steam canner can make all that a reality.

This workshop will teach you how canning is WAY faster than you thought possible!

Think canning is only for these folks?

Not any more.

Canning is FAST, easy, and practical for a modern, busy home and this course will teach you exactly how to use a steam canner to save you TIME and money.

You'll learn how to COOK IN ADVANCE and preserve delicious, ready-to-eat, healthy foods QUICKLY in a steam canner.

In addition to learning you how to use this newly USDA & National Center For Home Food Preservation approved steam canner, you will learn how to make and can a super special cranberry lemon jam that is gift-able, & perfect for beginners.

This lesson also demonstrates TWO different ways of processing for a super smooth jam.

Steam canners use just 2 1/2 quarts of water, as opposed to the 4+ quarts required for water bath canners.

This is a huge advantage for those canners who:

-Live in an RV or sailboat- store canned foods in a dark, cool spot!

-Suffer from an illness or disability that makes it difficult to lift over 10 pounds

-Used to be able to can but cannot due to surgery, health, or living conditions

-Are conserving energy- solar or propane users especially!

-Are canning below 7000 feet elevation

-Live in a small space- hello tiny houses!

Strawberry jam or carrot pickles (which are just a few of MANY quick recipes) would be DONE in under 20 minutes!

Steam canners are an affordable alternative to a water bath canning set up.

Steam canners are about $40, but you don't have to purchase a separate trivet or wire rack, or a jar lifter... but the greatest savings is TIME.

Steam canners come to a boil in 5 minutes (you'll see exactly how fast in the video!) and a big enamel canning pot comes to a boil after 30 minutes at LEAST...if not longer!

This course will teach a brand new beginner OR an experienced canner how to use this new time saver to add more wholesome, homemade foods to their diet in under half the time of a traditional water bath canner.

"If you've been wanting to start canning, get the steam canner! It's a life saver and so much easier!"

- @80oaksranch, new steam canning devotee

I have done all the research for you.

In late 2015, both Utah and Wisconsin Universities published studies proving that the steam canner is safe for preserving with water bath canning recipes.

Steam canners use the same element- heat- to preserve food in jars.

Because this is a fairly new development in a rather old-fashioned canning world, there's not a lot of info out there.

I've figured out who would benefit the most from steam canning, and wrote everything I learned in the course ebook.

You get my whole canning nerd brain in this course.

I read the studies, used my English teacher skills to break it down into understandable lessons for you, and then SHOWED you how to use this amazing tool in the course videos.

I remember my grandma canning ALL. DAY. LONG. How much time does canning take?
Old school canners made huge batches of preserves out of necessity and for efficiency's sake. The recipes I share are smaller quantities, are easy to cut in half or double, and I share tips for using smaller sized jars. I understand not everyone has a garden full of produce waiting to be canned nor the time to can it. For your first batch of jam in a steam canner, I would say to set aside just 1 hour from start to finish, to be on the safe side. However, the advantage of the steam canner is that they are WAY faster than a regular water bath canner, so expect it to go quickly! It takes just 5 minutes for the steam canner to be ready to process (I timed it!).
Gee, Jenny, how did you learn how to can? What are your qualifications?
Shucks, thanks for asking. I hold no science degree; rather, I have a Master's in English, a teaching credential, 9 years teaching experience in public school, 4 years teaching English at the community college, and I have been canning like a madwoman for the last 5. I have taken several in person workshops on canning, I called upon several experts when learning by trial and error and I'm a devout canning cookbook and blog reader.
I don't really cook. Ever. Can I take this course?
Yes! I don't use words like "sauté"- I say "cook on medium high." I explain everything, thoroughly, more than once and I include several PDFs to guide you at the stove. This course does NOT teach a ton of recipes- it is focused on teaching you HOW to use a steam canner and WHEN it is most advantageous to do so. Many canning recipes on my blog and in cookbooks are just a few ingredients, and require really simple steps. You can absolutely do this!

I started canning when I was pregnant with my first child (some gals paint baby rooms, I made 100 jars of applesauce). I poured over cookbooks, stood sweating in the kitchen, certain that I'd give me, my husband, and my unborn baby food poisoning. I sorted through pots, pans, ladles, funnels, lids, rings and so many jars. I scorched jam, under sugared, over spiced, broke jars, and learned the hard way why you need a specific set of tools. I want you to skip all that worry, uncertainty, and time wasting and jump right to the good part where you get to enjoy nourishing foods months after harvest and know what is in every mouthful.
