Are canning jar lids the new toilet paper?

People in our community must be busy putting up food for winter. How do I know? Finding canning lids has become a challenge lately. Are jar lids the new toilet paper? I hope not! 

It is a good time to be putting away food for the winter. If canning isn’t your thing, why not give freezing a try? Freezing your own vegetables is an easy way to make the most of your harvest, whether you have your own garden or shop at the farmers market.


Learn more about the Kossuth County Farmers Market and canning and freezing in the August 6 edition of the Kossuth County Advance.
