Home Made: Spaghetti Sauce Canning
I will be water bath canning. I have an older Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook that has directions on this method as well as a chart detailing instructions for various fruits and vegetables. Canning is dangerous, and not all fruits and vegetables can be canned with this method. PLEASE; YOU MUST RESEARCH before you start, if you are new to this. I have been canning for 20 years and I still research before I start.
Four jars fit in my pot, and it is important that the jars be fully submerged in the water. The water must be fully boiling for the duration of the process time. Sometimes I get water loss and add small amounts of water, enough to keep my jars submerged but not lose my boil. I processed my tomato sauce for 40 minutes.
Please Note: The jars stay hot for a few hours after they are removed be wary of curious husbands and kids...
This is how I can, I hope you enjoyed it. I will bring you more Home Made projects in the future, stay tuned.
