For years, I’ve suffered from a malady.
One that I’ve shamefully hidden, glossed over and tried to ignore.
You see, I am a can-o-phobe.
There, I said it.
I am one who has never canned.
Oh sure, I’ve made jam. And I’ve made pickles. But all ones that could be easily stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
Petrified that I’d end up killing friends and family (or at least making them deathly ill), I’d never had the nerve to water process the jars to attempt to make them shelf-stable instead.
