Learning how to preserve summer’s bounty doesn’t have to be an impossible task. I’ve long been an advocate of small batch preserving. But most of the equipment out there is geared to giant batches. What if you only want to do a couple of jars of salsa or jam? Fortunately, there’s a pint-sized set out there that makes it easy. I came across the Mini Stainless Steel Canning set at www.kitchenkrafts.com and I’m excited about it.
The set includes an 8-quart stainless steel pot with vented lid and a canning rack that will fit inside. It costs just $45. It will hold two quart jars or four pint jars at a time– perfect for small quantities. Couple it with the 5-piece canning tool set for $15 and you’ll be ready to go!
