Welcome to A Working Pantry!

Whether you're new to A Working Pantry or just want to know a little about the author of this blog, this is the place to start.

My grandmother was a preserver, my mother was a preserver and I am a preserver.  (Actually I am more than a preserver.  I don't just preserve our food, I also hunt down bargains, barter, swap and glean in order to keep my pantry well-stocked.)

I grew up in a household where we grew huge gardens every year and canned, froze and raised most all of our food. I remember as a child eating in season from the garden and working long hours preserving food for the winter months that would last until it was time for gardening season again.

I remember milking cows, making butter and gathering eggs.

I remember butchering days too, chickens, rabbits, turkeys, pigs, cows, this was how we got our meats.

That was how my parents kept our family fed then and with some exceptions is how we keep our family fed today.

Over time I learned that knowing how to build and keep a well-stocked pantry was a  skill others wanted to learn so I decided it was time to start passing on those skills. 

Although the main focus of A Working Pantry is building, using and maintaining a well-stocked pantry, I also write about frugality, homekeeping, my faith in God and other similar topics.

Before you leave check out the series "This is Why!" for inspiration on why keeping a well-stocked pantry is important.

I hope your visit here is profitable and that you'll come back often!

  2. I am in desperate need of help with using an All American pressure canner. Do you know of anyone who could help troubleshoot why the canner isn't putting forth a full, steady column of steam for 10 minutes and also leaking issues around the metal to metal seal.
    Regards,

    1. Leah, I don't have an All American pressure canner but I'll post the question to my readers to see if any of them have any ideas. So sorry you are having these issues. It can be so frustrating when our canners don't work right!
