I like the idea, but I might propose that instead we consider changing the "Vegetables" forum to "Vegetables and Canning" or something like that.

How about preserving rather than canning since there or other methods such as drying.

I agree with Horntoad. There are many ways to preserve food and canning is just one of them.

Actually I was referring to all types of food preserving, canning, as well as jams and jellies, , pickling, freezing, dehydrating etc.

Besides the veggie forum is rather slow. Adding food preserving might liven things up a bit.

Both the veggies and fruit forums are a bit slow. How about this for a proposal:

I propose that I merge the veggies and fruit forums into one forum, and name the new forum "Edibles and Preserving".

(Or a name similar to that)

Thumbs up and you could probably add the herbs forum to that too...it's pretty slow as well and herbs are great for preserving/drying/etc.
