Glen Haven Canning Co. Preserves

By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 8, 2018

Fresh from the “Dang, why didn’t we think of that?” file: The reborn Glen Haven Canning Co. is preserving the North’s natural bounty of fruits and veggies in cans almost too cute to open. Oh, but when you do — each reveals a harvest plucked and preserved at its ripest peak and absolutely perfect for wowing friends and family with embarrassingly easy-made pies and other fruit-forward concoctions. A relation only in name to the original Glen Haven Canning Co., whose bright red 1920’s-era cannery still stands on the shores of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the born-again company has reawakened the spirit of the past in a classy and truly tasty fashion. Find Glen Haven Canning Co.’s preserves — and soon, soups — plus the markets around the North that sell 'em at
