The Home Canner

Mrs. Hansen, a farmer's wife in Utah, is seen with her store of home-grown, home-preserved fruits and vegetables. This photo was taken in 1940 - an era in which housewives would can 500 quarts a year to feed their families during the winter.

1930's - 1940's women put-by in large amounts for their families. 

I really enjoy vintage canning books and photos.
Just thought I would share a few with you in case you too enjoy them.
