Hey! I’m Niki.
I’m behind the recipes and blogs here at Check Out These Cans. I’m so glad you’ve found this site and that I’m able to share my love of canning, cooking, and all things food with you.
Canning began as a hobby for me ten years ago. Since then, I’ve become a wife and mother to twins. After having the twins, I really began focusing on the foods that we were eating and giving to our children. I live in Ohio, so it’s not easy to have fresh local produce year-round. Canning fresh food has become a way that I can continue to give my family minimally processed, homemade foods throughout the year.
You’ll find directions on canning, canning tips and tricks, and lots of recipes that I’ve developed and tweaked over the years. Whether you’re new to canning, or an experienced pro, I hope you’ll enjoy this site and your canning journey.
I love hearing from you, so please contact us about a recipe that you love or an idea on how to make it even better!
