TIn Can Recipes - 200 years of Canning!

Tin Can Recipes....200 years of canning.

food in tin cans celebrates 200 years!!
and by it's look you couldn't tell.

why do we want to do this collection of recipes?

simply, because everybody, from upper class to lower, in every part of the world uses tin cans.
200 years of canning has transformed our way of cooking, conserving, stocking, re-cycling and shopping...

after had read the article on the Italian magazine "La Cucina Italiana" of January 2011, about this happy bicentennial, we found out that tinning was invented already in 1321, and in 1811 a British factory in London started to produce food in tin cans.
there are more the 1500 different food tin canned, hundred of thousand of tin cans sold every day in any part of the world...

aren't these arguments enough to celebrate worthily this Bicentennial?
to us it seemed right, so let's celebrate!

the rules are very simple:

1) everybody can join, with or without blog

2) make a dish, or more using all the tin cans you like.
no limit of tin cans or their ingredients.
use the tin cans your familiar with or from other country
why not an interesting fusion?

3) put the logo in you post, make a photo of you dish, with the tin can(s) you have used. I you want tell us why you used these(those) in particular, tell us why you use tin cans and if you use them often or not.
