Putting up your own fish VII: Canning

Tue, 08/25/2015 - 11:22pm
Sitka film-maker Ellen Frankenstein's documentary "Eating Alaska" cuts right to the core of how we think, and don't think, about where our food comes from; to know who cut up your food, to find it important - essential - for peace of mind, to know who cut it up yourself. Compare that mindset with a recent bill, passed by our United States Congress, that decrees meat in America no longer needs to be labeled with the country of origin. As of June 2015, not only do Americans no longer know who processed their meat, they don't even know what country the meat came from. In fact, they don't even know what continent their meat came from. Putting up your own food looks better all the time. And so, here's to home canning.
