Short video showing the basics of pressure canning green beans. One of the goals to work for with self-sufficiency, homesteading and/or preparedness is growing and putting up (preserving) enough food to last from one season to the next. This is how the pioneers and early settlers did it. They grew enough in the spring and summer not only for fresh eating during that time period, but enough to put up to keep them through the winter and till the next harvest. That should be our goal as we work towards self-sufficiency. Every little bit counts!

Preserving food by water bath and pressure canning should be a critical skillset for serious survivalists, homesteaders and all those seeking more independence in there life.

Growing a serious amount of food is a skill that takes time to develop. No one becomes "Farmer Jones" overnight. It has taken us 8 years to get to roughly 70% self-sufficiency with our food. That doesn't mean just having buckets of Long term food storage around, that means growing vegetables, grains, legumes, having fruit trees, raising rabbits and chickens for eggs and meat, etc. These skills have taken us a long time to hone and still we are no where near where we would like to be. Reason I say this is to squash the common idea amongst survivalists that after there storage food runs out, they will "just plant a garden" and everything will be hunkey-doree. If you do not have year to year experience growing 50% or more of your own food, as well as the infrastructure in place to be able to do so OFF GRID then my advice would be to begin developing those skills as well as adding to your food storage stocks.

Get out there and DO IT. Reading books is great, watching videos is great but EXPERIENCE is what counts. Good luck and thanks for watching!
