Too many leftover veggies from your garden?

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Do it right and you'll have fresh vegetables and jams in the middle of winter.  Do it wrong and you could be putting your health at risk.

Canning is a great way to hold on to the freshness of the summer months all year long.

Sally McNeill, an Extension Agent with the NC Cooperative Extension in Union County, visited WBTV News Sunday Morning to talk about home canning.  She talked about the various types of canners and showed us some different canning gadgets that can be used to help preserve the summer's bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
