I was given products in this post for the purpose of review. I was not paid to write this review. All options are my own
This past year has been a crazy one and quite honestly a scary one. With so much going on no one knows what to expect next. Worst yet, we cannot even be with our loved ones for fear of getting sick. It has been a bit of a wake up call for a lot of people. I live a simple life and I love it. I don't follow the latest fashion, my house is 'cozy' at best and little things like a good book & cuddling up with my pup makes me happy.
I'm lucky that my grandmother is still alive and of sound mind. Ever since I was a little girl she has taught me to take care of myself. She taught me to sew, cook, can food, garden, raise chickens, make soap and so much more. As a child I thought this was all so much fun. It wasn't until later in life I realized the true gift she gave me. She gave me the gift of knowledge and with it comes peace of mind. When the shelves at the stores started to clear out it, I still had shelves full of canned food. Most of it I grew myself! Don't get me wrong, I was scared, but because of the amazing things my grandmother taught me I was prepared.
Now I can go on and on about canning food and living a self sustainable life, but that isn't what this post is about. When you can food I need so much to fill a jar. When I just have a handful of something I cannot jar it. And honestly some food doesn't can as well as others. In that case I like to freeze it. For the longest time I would use my father in laws vacuum sealer (I just had to buy my own bags) but when the sickness hit and I couldn't just go to his house I pleased I realized I needed my own.
Which is what led me to the Anova Culinary Precision vacuum sealer.
