Canning Nuts

Recommended Posts

I'd like to learn more about these LDS canneries. There is a Morman church about a mile from my house and right across the street from the church I belong to. Is it typical for their churches to also house a cannery? I'm not sure if I know any of their members or not, living in the same town, but I'm certainly not opposed to asking them about it...but only if that's the proper protocol.

 

MikeE,

In my limited experience, it is located in proximity to the bishop's offices. Houston has one that serves an area in about a 150 mile radius. The production hardware for converting peanuts into peanut butter is not cheap so I wouldn't expect a small town to have a "cannery". I could well be wrong but there it is.

http://www.countrysurvival.com/mormon-canneries-and-self-reliance/ has a photo of the packaging end of the peanut butter canning process in Houston.

Given the history of the Mormons, they are a tad reticent, even today, to be too open to us 'normal' folks. Google might be your best friend. Making friends with the folks at the church might give you the chance to use their equipment but it is by invitation only so, best behavior. Our friend was on the dime to guarantee our behavior at the site.

Thanks so much, Capt. It appears that none are in my home state, so I won't go that route. My wife does can preserves every summer, so I guess I'l just have to encourage her to branch out a bit. I know my sister in law cans beans every year. I'm just gonna roll up my sleeves and pitch in...that will get their attention. Lol

hi all

i'm not a expert on this.but it is my understanding that once the shells are off or broken,they start losing nutrients.so why not store with shells on?nutrients are the reason for for storing food.
