RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) – RVA Swappers is a group that gathers once a month to swap homemade and handcrafted foods and beverages, and most of the swappers ‘can’ their own goods. RVA Swappers Co-Founder, Andrea Buono, shows us how to can your own creations using boiling water. The next RVA Swappers meet will be Sunday, July 28th from 3pm to 5pm at the Belmont Butchery. Reserve your spot today at

An important note from the National Center for Home Food Preservation:

“A pressure canner is needed to ensure safe low-acid canned foods. There are no safe boiling water canning options for vegetables, meats and seafood, soups and some other mixtures of foods.”
