Don't have an answer but it's a great question ... so I'm just signing on to see if someone out there knows ...

Have you tried Ball Canning Co.'s web site -- I think it's ball.com but I'm not sure -- I know that they have loads of canning recipes and answers

Thank You, yes i did find the information in the Blue Ball Canning book. It said I could as song as I heated it to boiling and put the hot sauce in hot jars. It worked great and we are still enjoying applesauce today

Mary,
No need to be afraid of canning Just get a good canning book, like the Ball Corp. one and follow the directions. I was a city girl with absolutely NO canning experience at all and no one much to help me. Everything has always turned out fine. Granted it's a lot of work and only cost efficient if you raise your own but give it a try. It's nice to see all that produce on the shelves ready for winter.

Chi, truth be told I am planning to give it a try this year. I'm hoping to put in a substantial garden. This year I froze applesauce (from a local orchard-pick your own) and even made freezer pickles!

Do you use a pressure canner or use a hot water bath? I'm trying to decide whether to buy a huge kettle or invest in the canner.

Applesauce is high in acid so you can use a water bath canner but if your going to can any veggies or meat you need a pressure canner. Theres tons of free information on the web about canning, also your local library would have a bunch of on the subject. Don't be afraid its easy...just takes jumping into the pot so to say lol

For applesauce it would be a hot water bath but you should go ahead and invest in both. Just don't get a pressure canner with a dial gauge(if they still make them) I've got a MIRRO brand with a different kind and never have to worry about calibrating it. Just follow all the directions and you should be fine. The only thing I sometimes forget, even after years is to run a plastic spatula or sometthing in the jars to get rid of the air bubbles.

Have fun.

CANNING

Even though I live alone, with my 2 grands around on a regular basis, I decided to start canning again this year. I'm trying to find someone to til me a garden but, if not, I'll hit the farmers market.

Anyway, when I decided to do this, I hit e-bay for a canner. Got a fantastic deal ($40 including shipping), but those will be few and far between when spring hits and the REST of the folks get the same idea I did!

If you're serious about canning, I would start watching.

Good luck!
