My Pantry, It is a Changing!

Hello all,
  I hope this post finds everyone well and happy today!  In the past I have very proudly showed off pics of my pantry stash full of goodies I have picked up cheaply on sale or using coupons.
See what I mean!  LOOK AT ALL OF THAT PROCESSED FOOD! Lots of processed food products. Lots of additives and chemicals.  
  I guess some (processed) food is better than none!  But I wanted to help my family start to eat better. So I started to can some jams and jellies.  I was hooked on canning.  Then I got a dehydrator and loved using that.  Now I have gotten my own pressure canner and I am loving it!!  I have been processing my own food-sans the additives  and chemicals.
So, here is a pic of my pantry now.
Can you see the difference?  I know, I know, there are still some processed foods but there are many more home canned items on my shelves! Yippe for me!!  I absolutely love canning my own food.  I have canned dried beans, beef stew, jams and jellies, green beans and potatoes.  I cannot wait to can more!   Soups, broth, and canned meats are in my future!
What have you canned for your pantry lately?
 Home canned blessings to you all,


  1. Yippe for you! I've canned everything except meat - on my bucket list. Love my pressure cooker too. Good job making a healthy change. Blessings from Wisconsin.

    1. Thanks! I cannot believe how fulfilling canning is. I love having home canned convenience foods in my stash!
      Have a great day!
