Check out my Prepper’s Canning Guide review – then order your copy!
Daisy Luther has written four books and her latest is The Prepper’s Canning Guide. I just finished reading it and was happy to find some delicious recipes for all kinds of canned items.
Prepper’s Canning Guide – Book Review
However, it isn’t just a compilation of recipes – Daisy covers the procedures of canning (both water bath canning and pressure canning) as well as food safety guidelines. She explains how to use a canner as well as modern pressure canning methods.
She takes us through the process of canning vegetables and fruits, plus there is a section devoted to canning entire meals in one jar.
Meals in Jars
That photo above is some pressure canned Lamb stew we made a couple of years ago. So very easy to just pull a jar from the pantry, heat it up and serve with salad and a dinner bun!
We find meals in jar super helpful because we are always so busy these days! Instead of having to come up with new ideas for dinners on busy weeknights, we can just grab a jar or two, heat it and serve it up.
How easy is that? If we are really hungry at lunch, we can each grab a jar of stew. If we’re not, we’ll grab a jar of soup instead. Such a quick meal when we are in a hurry.
The Prepper’s Canning Guide isn’t just for preppers, so don’t turn away from it because you think it is for survivalists or extreme thinkers. It’s an approachable guide to up the level of your emergency food supply!
So, give it a read and glean a LOT of information about how to can foods safely, what to do with all those garden harvests and how to fill your pantry with delicious healthy meals.
This book includes canning different types of meat. So, if you find a great sale on beef at the store, grab it and start canning.
You can save a LOT of money buying things only on sale. Then preserve them and put them away. Buy in large quantities (bulk shopping), start preserving and be able to store nutrition-packed foods in your food storage.
Grab a jar at dinner time and you’ll be enjoying your money savings all year round.

If you are new to home canning, it’s important to know that you need to follow the specific process for what you are doing. Canning shelf-stable foods is not difficult, but it must be done properly.
So, up your level of preparedness and become more self-sufficient! Be prepared for power outages, runs of the food in grocery stores and medical emergencies. People’s desperation for food can result in bare shelves.
Take care of your own food storage. By doing so, your family will be well-fed even in times of food scarcity.
Having a lifesaving supply of food is an important part of self sufficiency, and even at times, survival.
This book covers the information you need to know – you can also read articles here on this site for water bath canning and also pressure canning.
If you are using Tattler Reusable Lids and Seals, you can read my article here about water bath canning using Tattler lids. These lids have their own special instructions that need to be followed.
