Did you know that everything from turnips to strawberries can be canned? Fruits and vegetables of all kinds can go through the preserving process and become a delightful snack or side for a meal.
Here are a few canning tips from BellyBytes
- Jars should still be sterilized when foods are processed using the open kettle method
- Pack most meats, peas, corn and lima beans loosely – heat penetration is slow on these foods
- Solidly pack fruits and berries due to shrinkage
- Never use any type of artificial chemical substance or preservatives when product is canned
