Several more reasons why people enjoy pressure canning their own food:


Self-sustainability plays a significant role in home canning as it allows individuals to become more self-sufficient and reduce their dependence on outside sources for food. Pressure Canning provides a way for people to preserve and store their own food, reducing the need to purchase canned goods from grocery stores.

By growing their own fruits and vegetables or purchasing them in bulk when they are in season, people can save money and control the quality of the food they eat. Canning also allows them to preserve surplus produce and reduce food waste, helping to conserve resources and minimize their environmental impact.

Learning the steps to safely pressure can food in jars is a step towards self-sustainability as it provides individuals with greater control over their food supply, reduces their dependence on outside sources, and helps them to conserve resources and reduce waste.
