Canned Food

How does that old saying go? Eat what you can, and what you can’t eat, we’ll can ... or something similar. Well, without old Nicolas Appert we wouldn’t be familiar with any part of that saying because he was the one who invented the canning process.
Nicolas Appert was born October 23, 1749 at Chalons-Sur-Marne, France. He was destined to become a great chef and confectioner -- and chemist and inventor. In 1809 the French government awarded Appert with twelve thousand francs for his contribution to the world. Nicolas Appert had, in his search to preserve food, invented a process of heating foods and sealing them in airtight containers. In 1812 he was bestowed with the title, Benefactor of Humanity. Just think, we still use his methods of food preservation today!

And, we wouldn’t want to forget another invention of Appert’s: the bouillon cube. It was probably the first instant soup. Just add water. Then heat to boiling and seal in an airtight jar, tin or can and serve it on Canned Food Day next year!
