Enjoy your harvest year-round by canning and preserving your summer bounty. Save money, eat healthier, with no additives or chemicals... and with much better taste! Depending on what veggies/fruits you wish to can here are different methods of canning:
- Pressure canning is a method used with low-acid foods. Vegetables fall into this category except for tomatoes which, should be canned using the water bath process. This technique requires a 240 degree Fahrenheit temperature in order to destroy a certain amount of bacteria.
- Water bath canning is a technique of food canning for jams, jellies, fruits, pickles, preserves, tomatoes and relishes. All of them are high-acid foods which must be processed in boiling water at 212 degrees Fahrenheit to exterminate bacteria. The processing time can vary depending on the jar and food size.
- Freezing is another food canning process that can be used for some fruits and fresh vegetables. It involves blanching or quick steaming of foods
Canning is so easy, ANYONE can do it! Food canning can include vegetables and fruits which you have grown in your own garden or have purchased from organic or regular farmer's market. K&B True Value has all your canning needs for this year's harvest from jars and lids to pectin and MORE!
