When we are canning our food for later use we need to be careful which foods we are canning. Learn which food you should never can and why you shouldn’t. Should I can this food or not? This is a well-debated topic. There is so much opinion and discussion over this that it is hard to reach a conclusion. One can find so many articles all over the internet about canning instructions but you can’t be sure if they are correct.
Nowadays, food from the store has been exposed to many things like pesticides and fungicides and it raises the question if it should be stored. Fortunately, the development in the field of science, especially microbiology has given us better insight about how we can prevent the dangers from food. The advancement in the way food is processed and the developments in microbiology have also changed the guidelines for canning food. The debate is mostly that some feel one should rely on the time-tested traditional methods while others believe that we must follow the science behind the whole procedure.
On the other hand, we have the USDA which has outlined canning guidelines but many don’t trust the USDA. This article by the Americans Preppers Network has been written after thorough research on the topic. It breaks the myth about the USDA and also lists food items that should not be canned outlining reasons that justify the opinion.
