contact your nearest LDS cannery. there are a couple up there. let me know if can't...i ship you a few cases from ARIZONA. anyone eeds canning supplies shipped, i will do it for my cost and satisfaction of helping.
i have 2 large MASTER CANNER sealers that will do the job. the MORMON member will likely be able to take you to the cannery if he/she goes and takes you as a guest.
or, JOE, i can ship/loan you one of my can sealers. i trust you. it is an older unit that works like a charm.....new retail is $995.00. so we just need to keep track of it.
if you have a friend who is MORMON, they SHOULD be very happy to help....just tell them to keep the B of M if you are not interested. a friend will help....yet a friend will listen to your wishes.
ALL sizes of cans used at cannery are available for empty purchase.
ps: what are you canning and what is your cost of uncanned, bulk item?
Bilbo Thanks for your generous offer. My plan was to get a coupla families together and purchase a can sealer to be used amongst us all. I have one that will do the smaller #2 and #3 cans...well mom does. But want to can some sugar, flour, rice, and powdered milk (to start with) in the #10 cans. My friends moved out of state a few years ago and we have lost contact, I would deffinately take you up on the #10 cans offer. Maybe we can PM on the details.
To be honest with you, I haven't paid to close attention to the price of bulk products here. It's kind of like fuel, when ya need it, ya get it, what ever the price. I did pay $39 for 50# of rice last week.
2dawgs,Contact the LDS at the Bishops Cannery @746-3509 they are located out in the Butte area. They might be able to asnwer some of your ques. I know that they have a place to can all types of things ,I had heard at one time that you did not have to belong to the church to use the place. Would be worth a phone call. Good luck
i am picking up some fresh crop pintos down in southern az in a couple weeks for 48 cents per pound in 50#s. don't know shipping. good beans, though. let me know. you an also dry can field corn. ground, this makes the best corn meal you ever ate.
Sorry fellas, I've been out of town for a few weeks. Three Bears has canning supplys (cans, lids and jars) for the smaller 2"-3" cans. I'm looking for the larger #10 cans (like the mountian house cans).
I've been gone so I haven't contacted my local LDS cannery yet, tomorrows project.
Still looking for a can sealer to purchase ( the large ones for the #10 cans). Been watching E-bay.
