30 Canning Recipes Just Like Grandma Made

Practice the art of preserving food with this amazing collection of canning recipes.

As a farmer’s daughter in Montana, summers always meant helping mom in the garden. I can’t say that I was necessarily an eager helper, but I did get lots of experience!

I remember snapping beans, washing cucumbers, packing jars, and pulling skins off peaches.

I no longer tend to a garden half the size of a city block, but I know some of you do – with gardens even larger than that!

So, today I’ve rounded up a whole bunch of beautiful canning recipes. Some of them remind me of my Mom’s & Grandma’s recipes.


I hope you’ll enjoy using them to preserve your beautiful garden bounty.

During those long, cold Winter months, you’ll be so glad to reach into your pantry, pull out a beautiful homemade canned good, and enjoy a taste of Summer!

Happy Canning.

  1. Hi Rita
    Thank you so much for sharing this! I am going to try canning jam this year and use your recipes.
    I bought a pressure canner a few weeks ago so that we can can all the salmon my husband catch every year instead of paying a local company to do it. Last night I made our first batch of 16 pint size canned salmon. The pressure canner worked exactly as the instructions and YouTube videos I watched before trying it. I was a bit nervous to use the pressure canner, but feel much more confident already especially because it kept the pressure at the constant 10 psi as I should have! Today I am making another batch.
