Anyone can their own food?

Does anyone can their own food for long term storage? If so, where locally can I pick up a pressure caner and supplies? I'd like to shop local rather than just jump to the internet.

Not sure what you mean by pressure canner. most people do it just by boiling the jars to get the air out and kill any bacteria

my dad used to do it when I was a kid.

I'm looking into long term storage for personal reasons.
Started our herb garden indoors already and my parents usually give us plenty from their garden during the summer.
Not interested in dehydrated foods.

From what I've been reading, boiling jars in a pot works for acidic foods such as tomatoes, but to ensure no bacteria lives in the jars filled with vegetables a pressure cooker is needed.

Walmart has the jars and lids. The pressure cooker can be found at some walmarts, meijer gets them in sometimes and bed bath and beyond has them:
http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/sear...0&dim=1&nty=1&

oddly enough family dollar gets the jars in super cheap in the spring time. We had a neighbor that used to make jams and jellys, and that's where her jars were from . I would suggest only using Ball brand jars.

You can freeze herbs and a lot of other veggies too. I keep parsley, cilantro, and basil in my freezer all the time. Also keep a lot of veggie purees in there.
$169 for a 5 cu ft freezer at lowe's is a hell of a lot easier than canning, and you can avoid adding any acid to the low acidity veggies, which I think is nice because personally I think you CAN have too many pickled carrots.

so why would you need a pressure cooker vs. a big pot?

i only canned tomatos, but when i have a place of my own and the garden and trees growing i plan on canning everything also. i get this from my grandma she is cool like that. i also use the pasta jars

i want to drink, but only to kill a certain few brain cells and i don't care how many i have to take out to get to them.

Went to my local Bed Bath and Beyond and they wanted $100 for a small 8qt cooker. Amazon has a 24qt cooker, with all the required accessories for the same price.
Haven't made it to Meijer yet but I'll give them a try.

For the herbs, I'm lucky enough that the gf cooks, cooks often, and cooks really good, so the few herb plants we have rotate in nicely with out needing to freeze anything.

I'm going off what I learned from websites from this place
http://www.culinaryartscollege.org/t...-self-canning/

They all say that to can low-acid foods, you need to pressure cook them in order to kill certain bacteria that can withstand just boiling water. The acid level in tomatoes is suppose to be high enough to kill this bacteria by its self. If this is all true or not I have no idea, but I'll go with safer than with sorry.
