Vegetable Harvest and Vegetable Canning Chart #MissHomemade


MOST vegetables have a low-acid content, and require a higher processing temperature than fruits.

Some vegetables do NOT can well, like: broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, rutabagas and turnips. They tend to discolor and may develop a strong flavor. You can pickle some of them and they will turn out great.

Peas, lima beans and corn need 1" head-space at the top of the jar for expansion during cooking; other vegetables require only 1/2 inch.

Clean vegetables well. Any dirt remaining on them may contain harmful bacteria and cause spoilage. Now my Vegetable Canning Chart.
