Canning

Getting back to basics

Americans are canning again!  GraniteWare has all the products, tools and accessories to do it safely, easier and more productive.

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.

Note: A water bath canner use is 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. Presently, we only offer water bath canners.

We also offer TATTLER reusable canning lids and rings in both regular and wide sizes. These lids are excellent for use with acidic foods such as tomatoes and pickles. They are free of BPA and dishwasher safe. And they can be used in both water bath or pressure canning.  Made in the good ol’ USA.
