A great way to save money and have fresh foods throughout the winter months is home canning! I recently had the amazing opportunity to work with Fagor America to review their 9 Piece Pressure Cooking/Canning Set.
Since opening their offices in 1992, the Fagor brand name has become synonymous with high-quality stainless steel pressure cookers.
