  • As we begin the annual canning season, many questions arise regarding home canned products. Here are a few common questions from readers and answers giving accurate information.

    • How long will canned food keep? If properly sealed and stored in a cool, dry place, home canned food should keep for up to two years. However, for best quality, use within a year. Canned food stored in a warm place may lose some of its quality in a few weeks or months, depending on the temperature.  Dampness may corrode metal lids, causing leakage and spoilage of the food.
