You read correctly!
We have been canning candy bought for 50% off after Valentines. We will also be doing Easter candies in the next couple weeks but I am not waiting for a sale because I waited to the day after Valentines and it was all gone at Walmart but just a little at our local grocery store.
It's nice to have some chocolate stashed away in times of stress~!!!!
You will need a Food Saver with a jar lid attachment and hose
And then you can do this- but remember if the candy has loose wrapper, poke several holes in the wrapper to get the air out so it lasts longer
but once you open the jar ( why I used small jars) you have to eat all the candy- do not reseal!
Here is my trusty helper- I just love that he likes to help me with my projects!
You can see that I have suckers (the jolly rancher ones) too- those I had to poke holes in the wrappers
The red candies in the front are cherry m&m's hubby likes them but I think they are nasty tasting! lol
we also have some dove chocolate, jelly beans, truffles etc---
give it a try- I have friends who have opened their candy after 2 years and it's still fresh and tasty!
