I learned about copy canning from the video Urban Master Volume 1 “The Home”, created by the late Ron Hood and his wife. The process is very easy and is as follows:
- You decide you want chicken noodle soup for lunch so you take a can out of your pantry.
- Add chicken noodle soup to the shopping list.
- When you go to the grocery store, you buy two instead of one. (If you used two cans, you guessed it, you buy four.)
This is a great way to build your pantry to the point where you’re at the maximum amount of any item you want to store. Then you simply move back to buying just one when you use one.
