Preserving Autumn: A Canning Series

It's back! Our Canning 101 series on Simple Bites returns to feature the gorgeous produce of autumn.

With posts every day and a star-studded line-up of contributors, this series is sure to inspire you to put up some of the seasons flavors for year-round enjoyment.

Jennifer kicks things off today with not one, not two, but three amazing recipes for homemade pizza sauce. Her method for pizza sauce with oven-roasted tomatoes is my new favorite recipe - smokey, sultry and oh-so-simple.

Curious as to why we're spotlighting canning so often around here? Here are 9 Good Reasons to Can Your Own Food, an article I posted earlier this month highlighting the various motivations home canners have for what they do. It's a list nearly anyone can relate to - including Time.com, who quoted from the post in a recent article on simple advice for saving money.

In our canning series on Simple Bites, we'll be featuring apples and tomatoes, two favorites of the season, preserved in simple ways. The series will run all week, so be sure to stop by every day and be inspired!

I need to start canning more! I'm making apple butter soon but still worried about canning. I used to do it all the time as a kid (with my moms help) but doing it alone sorta scares me...haha.

I continue to love your blog. Just want to let you know that I borrowed your idea, giving you full credit of course, for the jam swap. If you're interested in how our little party turned out, check it out at abovethedamjam.blogspot.com
