Canning storage in basement, Korns family farmhouse

These photo show shelves in the basement for storing canned food. This food was probably canned by one of Allen's grandchildren, but the practice of canning food in jars is something that Allen Korn's wife Gladys would have also done to feed her family. Not much of her food came from the grocery store. Instead, it was grown in the garden or raised on the farm. For example, if she wanted to have chicken for supper, she just went to the henhouse and grabbed a chicken and took it to the chopping block.
