Putting Up

 

“Putting Up” is a Southern term from the US for home canning. Around the globe, countries have their own jars, bottles, lids, and seals that are somewhat proprietary to the region. Preserving food by creating a vacuum seal via heat was made famous by Nicolas Appert in France 1810. Napoleon was interested in food preparation in 1800. Mr. Appert accomplished his request a decade later. Today, putting up, home canning, processing, or bottling are all synonyms for correctly saving and preserving foods for long durations in glass vessels.
