A new generation is taking up home canning. Directions for using a water bath or pressure canner are even more accessible now with the audiobook release of The Home Canning Guide for Everyone Who Eats.
Online PR News – 11-April-2013 – Battle Creek, Michigan – Food is a hot topic. Burgeoning concerns about food safety and food security have inspired many people to take more control of their food supplies. The local food movement is part of this as people switch to supporting local growers and promote sustainable economies.
Preserving food at home is an important tool for people wishing to source more food locally and gain the most benefit from growing their own gardens. The April audiobook release of The home canning guide for Everyone Who Eats by Tracy Falbe is meant to make this time-tested do-it-yourself information even more accessible.
The ebook version of this guide has enjoyed surprising success since Falbe published it in May 2011. Without any marketing her home canning guide gained positive reviews at retailers and even hit number one in the canning and preserving category at Amazon last December.
This guide is written from the direct experience of the author who uses both the boiling water bath and pressure canning methods to preserve a variety of foods.
Tracy Falbe became interested in local food in 2006 and taught herself home canning. After becoming addicted to the hobby, she began promoting home food preservation. She gave a presentation at the Grange in Chico, California where she used to live and that led to an interview on the podcast More Hip Than Hippie. Eventually she wrote all the directions for using canning equipment and added many tips based on her experience. The guide also contains a sampling of canning recipes along with information meant to encourage people to adopt sustainable food practices and promote regional food security.
The audiobook version of The Home Canning Guide for Everyone Who Eats is one hour and 26 minutes. She also offers a printable PDF ebook version at www.falbepublishing.com for people who also want the text.
Anyone can listen to the chapter about how home canning halts food spoilage at the Falbe Publishing website. The audiobook is available in mp3 or iTunes m4b audiobook format. Additionally the guide can be found at Audible and iTunes.
Although home canning is a lot of work in the kitchen, Falbe encourages people to try it. “You’ll get food way more delicious than anything at the supermarket, and you’ll be proud of yourself for making it,” she said.
Founded in 2004 by Tracy Falbe, Falbe Publishing is a source of independently produced ebooks, audiobooks, books, and stock art.
