Perfectly Preserved Podcast Ep. 2 In this episode, The Canning Process

In this episode, The Canning Process, we will teach you the canning process, what happens when, and how to do it correctly!

The canning process includes preparing your preserves, putting them into warm or hot jars, putting on a lid, and submerging them in a hot water bath or a steam bath (via a steam canner). Then, once the water is boiling again OR once steam has filled the steam canner and the dial indicates the processing is “ready”, every canning recipes has a processing time that must be followed. Don’t forget to add 5 minutes of processing time for every 1000 feet above sea level you are preserving.

I mention an excellent canning book, So Easy to Preserve, and we highly recommend it.
