Canning

Getting back to basics

Americans are canning again! 

Since home gardening and farmers markets make fruits and vegetables readily available, canning is an economical way to preserve their quality while retaining important vitamins and nutrients. Preserving your own food gives you control over additives and processing methods. Canning is simply packing fruit or vegetables into jars, which are fitted with self sealing lids, then heat processed to kill dangerous organisms that could cause food spoilage. By using tested recipes, anyone can be a successful home canner.

GraniteWare Water Bath Canners

GraniteWare has all the products, tools and accessories to do it safely, easier and more productive.

Water bath canners are limited to fruits, tomatoes, pickles, relishes, jams and jellies with high acid levels. These foods make it safe to can them in boiling water, whereas most vegetables and meats are low in acid and need to be processed in a pressure canner which produces much higher temperatures.

PRESTO® Pressure Canners

Pressure canning is the only method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats and fish.

Presto canners work on gas, electric and smooth-top ranges. The Induction model, with a stainless steel-clad base for fast, even heating, is designed to work on induction ranges. Both versions can also be used as a water bath canner.
