Canning Mason Jar Ready Meals

In the world of homesteading, preservation is key! There are so many different ways to preserve your food but one that does really well for my family and families alike is canning mason jar ready meals! 

The preparation and process are a little more time consuming but once you have a variety of meals stocked away it can really change how your family is consuming. It cuts out the need for quick meals, processed ingredients or goods, and gives you fresh and homecooked in a grab and go manner. 

I thought what better way to help you get comfortable with this process than to provide you with a list of some of my all-time favorite mason jar ready meals that are canned for preservation!

This is a bowl of warmth and nutrition! A great way to shake off the chill from long Spring days outside, getting in Spring cleaning, while the air is still a little crisp. Without much effort or cook time, you can dump into a bowl and nourish your body very easily.
