About the Author
Diane Devereaux is The Canning Diva® , a nationally syndicated food preservation expert, radio host, television presenter, culinary instructor and mother of two. For over five years, Devereaux has been sharing her lifetime passion of canning and translating it to the lives of busy families across America.
Her latest book, Canning Full Circle, is the first cookbook of its kind to bridge the generational gap of traditional canning methods to today’s time-starved, over-extended families. Devereaux demonstrates just how easy, fun and rewarding home canning can be and answers the long awaited question of what to do with canned goods after they’re sealed and shelved for later use. (continued) Devereaux started home canning at the young age of 13 and was soon growing and maintaining her own garden. The experience quickly taught her the many benefits of natural pest control, crop rotation and healthy soil factors, heirloom seed production and collection, healthy meal creation, and of course, preserving her garden’s beautiful bounty.
She later received her Bachelors in International Business from Davenport University and plunged into a career in disaster management, where she applied her skills in food preservation, survival and sustainability to those in crisis. Her background in home canning combined with her tenure in disaster management led her to create The Canning Diva® , where she blended her passion for gardening and preserving with her knowledge of preparedness and self-reliance.
The Canning Diva® has made several TV appearances on WZZM Channel 13 Healthy You, WOODTV8 Eight West, WZZM Take Five & Company and FOX17 News to demonstrating home canning techniques and signature recipes. She’s also host of The Survival Mom Radio Network.
With fast food, microwaved meals and other preservative-laden “convenience foods” becoming the norm for society, the natural practice of canning is becoming a lost art. Now as food culture centers back to the importance of clean eating and healthy living, Diane Devereaux champions the practice of growing your own food, preserving your harvest and knowing exactly what goes into the food on your dinner table. (continued) An avid supporter of non-GMO seeds, Diane advocates the growth of crops without chemicals, pesticides and genetic manipulation. She is a firm believer in consumers having the right to know the contents of what they ingest and is a proud supporter of honest and forthright labeling of all foods. It is because of this belief she chooses to home can throughout the year to ensure a healthy lifestyle for herself and her family.
Diane has made it her goal to teach these time-honored traditions throughout West Michigan at various culinary schools and commercial kitchens, and it’s the driving force of her new book, Canning Full Circle: From Garden to Jar to Table.
Fruits and vegetables begin to lose their nutrient level as soon as they are picked. By canning fresh produce right after harvest, you preserve the highest level of nutrients and the full flavor nature intended.
By stocking your pantry with seasonal finds preserved at the peak of their freshness, canning allows you to broaden the spectrum of fruits and vegetables you consume throughout the year.
Home canning also helps reduce food costs and wasteful spoilage. And, possibly the best reason of all, it creates memorable experiences for families to share together. Diane Devereaux regularly appears as the food preservation expert for the following television networks:
WZZM Channel 13, an ABC news affiliate o Healthy You Segment o Morning Show o Take 5 Show
