Fruit Canning Chart


I have more than just a fruit canning chart, check out more fruit canning recipes below.  Tomatoes are at the end of the page.

What a treat it is to open a jar of jam and it tastes like you just picked the berries - and in reality it is snowing outside. Homemade jelly and jam is wonderful on a slice of toasted homemade bread. Enjoy.


I talk about thin, medium and thick syrup when canning most of the fruit, and the recipes for these syrups follow.

Use thin syrup for sweet fruit, medium syrup is used for moderately sweet fruit and thick syrup is used for sour fruit. Allow 1 cup of syrup for every quart of large fruit.


(TOMATOES ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE)

Throughout this page, I refer to thin, medium and thick syrups to use when canning.  Following are the recipes:

Vegetable Canning Chart





CANNING FRUIT WITHOUT SUGAR

Pick over, wash and cut up large fruit. Pack fruit very tightly in hot jars, filling the jars full. Put rubbers on the jars and set jars and covers on rack in canner or kettle. Add enough water to cover bottom of the rack. Cover pan and heat water gradually to the boiling point.

Boil for 20 minutes. The fruit will shrink. Use fruit in one jar to fill the other jars. Place hot covers on jars, screwing them not quite tight. Replace jars in kettle. Add boiling water to cover.

Cover kettle and process for length of time indicated for the HOT PACK PROCESS. Fruit may be sweetened and used for jams, pies, puddings, sauces or salads after canning.



HOW TO PREVENT FRUIT DISCOLORING

Light-colored fruits like apples, peaches and pears can be helped to retain their natural color by dropping them as they are prepared (into cold water) - to which 1 tablespoon each of salt and vinegar has been added to every 2 quarts of water. No more discoloration.
