Canning dream April 14, 2015
Reviewer: B.W. from Marion, IL United States  
This is the most reliable producer for canning. If you don't have good luck add a tiny bit of Borax (yes) as in 20 Mule Team; to your dirt. They need it and if your ground is deficient this helps. Taste great and slow to get woody.
