How to make Canned Fruits And Vegetables:
- Canning is the method of preserving food by keeping them in air-tight containers to prevent spoilage. The common methods used in canning are the open-kettle and the hot or cold pack methods.
- In the open-kettle method, the food is cooked directly in an open vessel as a means of killing the bacteria and then packed boiling hot in sterilized glass jars. It is then sealed completely. Fruits, tomatoes and pickles may be preserved through this method.
- The cold-pack method is done by packing products in containers and covering them with syrup or other liquid. The containers are then partially sealed, sterilized then sealed completely.
- In the hot-pack method, the raw material is precooked and packed immediately in a water bath or pressure cooker.
