I know there is some interest in dry pack canning and where to get the needed supplies. The canning machines are fairly available. However, they are not cheap. Depending on the model, they can cost between 600 to 1500 dollars.
Sources of supply
Embarcadero Home Cannery 510-535-2311, website http://www.ehcan.com/CanSealers.html. I have dealt with them in the past to get extra parts and have found them to be reliable.
The electric canner that I was using to can the rice is from Gering & Son, Nampa Idaho, 208 466-9003 website http://www.geringandson.com/canner.php. This is a good machine and has proved to be very reliable. Here is a link to a list of companies that they say will sell you small orders of cans http://www.geringandson.com/doc/suppliers.pdf Canning Pantry, website
Here are two companies that sell the All American Can Sealers; I have not dealt with either of them.
Canning Pantry, website http://www.canningpantry.com/all-american-can-sealers.html I have a All American Senior Flywheel Can Sealer – 1502 which is over 30 years old and still works well.
Another company is homestead products, website http://www.homestead-products.com/can-sealers.htm.
All of these can sealer can be used for canning wet pack products in metal cans. I have a friend who cans his own meat. This is something that I have not tried yet. I will try to get him to write a post on this subject.
Because of my proximity to an LDS Cannery, I purchase my cans there. You can check the website http://bit.ly/fXEv5H to find the one nearest to you.
