Sharon Peterson

Sharon is a homeschooling, gardening and canning mom who lives with her husband and sons in rural western Colorado. Hunting, gardening and canning are a way of life for this family.

Sharon first started canning after her garden grew and the food coming out had to be preserved. She has everything from apples, tomatoes and green beans to soups, stews and venison.

Her pantry is filled with the fruits of her labor. She teaches canning at Simply Canning where she emphasizes that safe home canning is a rewarding skill that benefits everyone involved, from those who grow the food to those who eat it.
