canning can save you money but it also takes a lot of time and resources. i've canned for years and now only do things i can't easily get fresh or a quality substitute doesn't exist.

for example, i love heirloom tomatoes. so at the end of the season i can the end of the crop and have incredible canned tomatoes all year round.

i also have an obsession with creating the perfect pickle.

i also do jams and jellies as it's fun and i can control the amount of sugar or the sweetner i use.

with the readily avialable supply of food year aorund these days I don't believe canning makes a lot of sense from a strictly economic or dietary sense. but it is fun if you do things you enjoy.
