We have 2 canneries available to us. (They are also known as Home Storage Centers).
IN - Indianapolis
*We do not have any work assignments for either cannery. We are able to go to the cannery to fill our own orders.
*Order forms can be found here: http://www.providentliving.org/content/display/0,11666,8133-1-4352-1,00.html
*All trips to the Indianapolis Cannery need to be scheduled through me. (I can schedule trips for the following days: Monday morning, Tuesday after 1pm, Wednesday - Saturday - session times 9am-1pm, 1pm-4pm)
*Anyone may call the Columbus Cannery and make an appointment to go. The best days to call are Monday and Tuesday during the days.
*We have a canner (for sealing 10# cans) and a mylar pouch sealer that can be checked out. Just send me an email to schedule pickup.
*Mylar pouches and oxygen absorbers are also available for purchase from www.ldscatalog.com.
*May I bring my own items from home to can?
*What are approved products?
Approved products are low-moisture whole grains (not milled or cracked) that do not have an oily seed coat, most dried beans, legumes like dry peas, pasta products that do not contain eggs, dehydrated or freeze-dried fruits and vegetables that are dry enough to snap when bent, TVP (texturized vegetable protein), granulated sugar, processed white flour (not self rising), non-fat dry milk, gelatin, and pudding desserts (that do not contain eggs).
*What are non-approved products?
*Can I pay with my credit card or debit card?
NO. We do not accept either of these. Checks are preferred or cash in the exact purchase amount will be accepted. Please do NOT make out your checks in advance! Items may be out of stock or a price change may have occurred. An order form/price list is used to enter all transactions into the cash register. A cash register receipt with itemized prices will be issued for all payments. No products leave the cannery without payment in full being received.
*What needs oxygen absorber packets and what does not?
*Didn’t we use to do wet pack canning?

*White wheat is currently unavailable. It will be available in January.
