Whenever you can something, or freeze, or dry, or just plain store something, you need to label it. I have pulled a bag out of the freezer and thought that I had discovered something from a past epoch – frozen turkey from which Thanksgiving??
There are many ways to label a product. The easiest is a permanent marker written on the bag for the freezer or lid of a canning jar. It is hard to get all of the details of a canning project on the lid when you are hand labeling. So I usually print a label.
I have a Brother Label Printer, model QL-700, that came with some software that helps you design labels. My husband purchased it for about $50 at an Office Depot. We ordered additional labels from Amazon. It is not the easiest software to use but once you get a format you like you just save the label and use it as a starting point for your next project. There are different size labels you can purchase for this machine. The above is a 3.5 inch label which is too large for a canning jar so I use a round cutter to slice off the edges and it makes a nice looking label then.
