My name is Kelli and I live in the southern mid-west. I learned to can fruits and vegetables when I was eight years old, from my grandmother. She taught me everything she knew and I have kept that knowledge with me for a very long time. I like to can, mostly making jelly, jam, and marmalade as a hobby. I am not a purist nor am I obsessed with not using sugar or pectin. I really enjoy the process of canning and love to learn new things that other canners might be willing to share. I hope you enjoy my blog and will contribute as often as you like!
