And What To Do Instead
In this episode, we are diving into the common canning mistakes people make and what you can do instead. We also give each method a grade to give you a sense of risk inherent in each method. The riskier the method, the lower the grade.
We explored open kettle & upside down “canning” methods, which get a C- grade if the recipe is high in acid.
We chatted about the dishwasher process method which gets a C- grade if the recipe is high acid and we explain in detail why this one won’t get a good grade.
We discuss oven canning, both “wet” and “dry”, and this method gets a C- for high acid recipes and an F for low acid recipes.
We talked about the water bath canning of low acid recipes and explain in detail why this method gets an F grade from us, no matter what.
Finally we shared about paraffin wax seals and we’d grade this a D+.
