Tips for our Experts

2 Home Canning Methods

1)This method is a lower temperature canning process, ideal for high-acid foods and recipes that incorporate the correct measure of acid. It is recommended for fruits, jams, jellies, salsa, tomatoes, pickles, chutneys, sauces, pie fillings, and condiments.

2)This is a high temperature method needed to safely preserve low-acid foods. It’s recommended for meats, poultry, vegetables, chili, and seafood. The USDA advises against using a pressure cooker for canning because there are too many different models with varying results.

What Do You Need to Can at Home?

  • Jar lifter Tongs: Tongs help to pick up hot jars and safely take them out of hot water after processing.
  • Ladle: A ladle helps to spoon food into canning jars.
  • Wide-mouth funnel: A wide-mouth funnel has a larger opening to fit jars. It makes it a cleaner task to fill your jars and keeps the rims cleaner.
  • Canning jars and seals: Use glass mason jars with sealed lids. Ball mason jars are recommended.
  • Large pot or water-bath canner: If you are mainly focusing on fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and salsa a water-bath canner or large pot will work great.
