Canning Water For Emergency Preparedness
-------------------- Sponsored Links --------------------


I am familiar with the process of canning, that many use for food, fruits and vegetables. However I recently found out that you could use the same process for your water. Remember it is always very important that you have lots of water stored in case of emergencies.

No special equipment is required for this process. Just make sure you use large jars like quart and half gallon jars, so you can store more water. The method we will be taking a look at below is called ‘inversion canning’ and has been used for many decades by a 80 year old woman, who is a canning enthusiast.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Alright, so the process begins by boiling water for at least 5 minutes in the stainless steel pot. A stew or soup pot will be perfect for this. While the water is boiling your jars need to be placed in the oven at 175 degrees F or you can wash them in your dishwasher.Use the measuring cup or ladle to fill the jars with water whilst they are still hot.

You can add a little salt or sugar to your water if you wish. I personally didn’t do this, although they say it helps prevent the water having a flat taste. Leave at least half an inch of space below the rim, and then screw on the lids. Carefully place your jars upside down on a kitchen towel, that is laying on your counter. After the jars cool, they should seal. Make the jars with the date using your marker before storing them in a cool dry place. Canned water can be stored safely for at least 12 months. Shake to aerate before drinking.
