Wow!!! Thank you so much!!!

Please don’t let the negative reviews deter you from listening to this great podcast chalk full of great recipes, tips & facts. I have canned for several years but have been too intimidated by the pressure canner.
Thanks to stumbling upon this podcast; I feel it’s time to set my fears aside & begin this creative adventure!
Excellent timing as I just finished canning last years crop of figs into fig marmalade.
Thank you again so much for taking your time to share your knowledge & experience of this time honored tradition passed down through the generations. ❤️

Love this podcast - canning diva follower for a decade

I am so disappointed in the one star review someone posted. If you’re a canner, you know the term “canning nazi” is often used in the canning community to describe those canners who think botulism is a by-product of canning and choose to scare people to death. The Canning Diva has a wealth of knowledge and it’s fun listening to her podcasts again. I highly recommend her podcast!

Oy vey!!

Well done to her followers! You all made this chick rich buying her book which spews off unsafe canning methods. Science was slapped in the face with this lady. What a shame. I truly hope no one gets sick or dies from her “tested” recipes.
