Translation: Canning is Preserving or Bottling

This is just a tip for non-USA residents that I have finally managed to work out! Canning, for all of us Europeans, means preserving or bottling! Not a tin in sight!

I have deleted so many tips and recipes because I was under the impression that canning meant something that has baked beans in it! Just for information only.

Editor's Note: Thanks Cett. Because we are in the USA, we sometimes don't realize the differences in terminology.
