How Canning Was Invented Via thekitchn

Nowadays, people tend to think about eating healthy and going vegan and all. Which is actually fine but they seem to forget how the people from the past actually did a good job at preserving food even if people from now say it is unhealthy.

It was Nicolas Appert who actually came up with the idea of putting foods inside of a jar in the 1700s. He successfully preserved soups, vegetables, juices and even dairy. Air is said to be the reason why food gets spoiled but he wasn't completely right in that department.

During the French War, Napoleon gave 12,000 francs to the person who will come up with the device that would feed his hundreds of troops.

So Appert found out that it was not air but actually heat that kept that pesky spoilage. He placed the food in glass jars and sealed it tightly and then boiled them. He gave this idea to the French government in 1810.

But always remember that not every food in this world can be canned or preserved in any way.

The Beginning of Corn

It is believed that corn originated from the valleys of Mexico. And in 2500 BC, it spread throughout the entire American region.

When the Europeans came, they carried Corns back to Europe and introduced it to the other countries. They found out that corn has the ability to grow in diverse climates.

Back in the day, Corns were eaten fresh but some was cooked in fried cakes, bread, and pudding whereas field corn was used for livestock feed (even up to this date)
