This is the season for canning! As we gather our harvests for the year to store for winter, it’s important to note the few dangers of canning so we can keep ourselves and families safe and healthy.

Canning is simple, but it can come with some dangers too.  If you are new to canning, make sure you take these things into consideration.  Do your research and read up on canning before you take on this hobby so you can adequately prepare yourself with the information you might need.


Botulism is a rare but serious food poisoning illness and is caused by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria.  It is found in canned foods that have not been sealed properly. This bacteria produces a toxin in canned goods that attacks the nervous system and can cause paralysis and even death.  This bacteria is the reason many preppers are rightly concerned with canning, and it is not something you will want to play around with.

Pressure canning is the best way to prevent botulism, as water bath canning often doesn’t produce high enough temperatures to kill all of the bacteria.


By creating a sterile canning environment, you can help lessen the chances of foodborne illness.  Make sure all your tools and cans/jars are as clean as possible. The best way to sterilize jars is to place them in boiling water for at least 10 minutes. Placing them in a warm oven during the canning process will help keep the jars warm and won’t compromise their sterile condition. Sterilize lids and rings in boiling water as well.


While you should still sterilize your new lids AND replace them every year. The rings and cans can be reused and sterilized many times, however, if you reuse lids, you could be using a top that doesn’t seal properly, which can ruin your canned food. A bad seal also invites bacteria and toxins to enter your food, which could make you sick as I mentioned before. Mark the lids with a date and what is in the jar so you know not to reuse them for canning.


Make sure you check every single jar of canned food once it’s cooled off.  If the jar lid can move at all when you apply pressure, it isn’t sealed properly and will not store safely. Before opening a can or a jar, make sure the lid is still sealed and you hear a “pop” indicating the suction has broken.  You should also check that the lid is still unmoving before listening for a pop. Inspect the top of your canned food and look for any odd-looking liquid or foam. If you notice any discolored, moldy, or stinky food, DO NOT EAT IT.

By being aware of a few things that could cause potential illness, those who choose to can may rest more easily.  Trust your gut instincts too.  If something doesn’t seem right, don’t eat the food.  Safety should come first.

    And never ever add gun powder and nails in the pressure cooker. For professionals only.

      Those crisis actors were reportedly doxxed and found in many separate drills, acting inappropriately, during the staged disaster.

      The villain’s last words were supposedly to the effect of, that was not supposed to happen. It was a mistake, don’t shoot them.

      Doesn’t seem like a good career choice, imho.

      I first learned about these subjects, before AJ ever popularized the concept of a false flag. In school (probably over a generation ago) they told us that an armed bank robber had escaped and were drilling us to jump on a bus and go to undisclosed locations, where our parents could not get us back, without jumping through many legal hurdles.

      A teacher confided in me that it was not in any of the newspapers, because it never actually happened, in real life.

      This was attempted twice, in the same year.

      Noone else had apparently bothered to ask.

      • they tried that crap with my kid. She knew to get out out out of the area and meet at one of two locations if they pulled that BS. First “drill”, she split off and called me. School gave me all kinds of hell until I pointed out kidnapping was a crime and to expect a lawsuit if they tried again.

        I’m not volunteering my kid to play the part of a corpse for the evening news (or worse, get taken into the system).

          We skipped being shipped off to evacuation centers, during the yearly brush fires, and put water on our parents’ houses.

          Stupid kids became a burden, during the emergency, because it took so many hours to retrieve them.

          We have been drilled, to get disappeared, to undisclosed locations, from elementary school, as though it was some rote reflex from muscle memory.

          Since about 25yrs ago.

    There are some people, at local meetups and “courses”, whose cooking should not be trusted.

    But, Boomers had an obnoxious public service announcement, akin to the mattress tag and candy apple scare.

    When they don’t want to feed you, it’s a Victory Garden.

    When they want to you buy subsidized food, again, a fork touches your tongue, and you die on the spot, in the urban legend.

    What serious prepper cans food?

    The entire concept of stocking emergency food supplies in the form of canned goods is essentially one of storing water, a rather poor alternative for either storing food or water. Emergency food supplies, unless one has extra space to burn, should be in dried form.

    There are always legitimate exceptions to every generality but serious prepping is seldom about wasting precious storage space.

    But I could be wrong.

    • Archivist says:

      I live in the country in a house, so there’s almost no limit to my “precious storage space.”

      As canned food already has the water in it, it’s simply heat and eat.

      I’ve never seen pickles or preserves in freeze-dried form. Canned food gives you so much more variety of ready to eat food.

    There is nothing quite so validating as being censored by a fucktard for pointing out the slimy misinformation posted by the fucktard.
