Determine the types of food you wish to can
The first step is to decide what type of food you wish to store. Once you decide that, it will go a long way in helping you choose the appropriate packaging because some kinds of food will require jars, whereas others may need boxes or bags. Determining the type of food is also going to help you know if the canned food needs to be refrigerated or not.
Make your food
The next step towards canning your food is to make sure that you use fresh produce while making food. If you are not using fresh vegetables or meat, chances are high that it will not be stored efficiently and may turn rotten very quickly.
Visit a local grocery store and purchase food cans. It is recommended that you thoroughly monitor the bottles or the jars before buying them as it will really help you get the packaging of your required quality and size.
Can the food
You should put the food in the cans and make sure that you seal them properly. Double check the cans to avoid any kind of leakage.
Label the cans
Use a permanent marker to write the name of the food on the cans, as this will help you identify the contents with ease.
