Weigh and measure all material accurately.

Most fruits and vegetables require blanching; that is, all vegetables
and fruits, berries excepted, should be first plunged into boiling water
or steam after being picked over, and then, in turn plunged at once into

jar. Carrots, parsnips and sweet potatoes require a teaspoon to the
Then fill jars to within quarter inch of top with boiling water, and put
in hot water bath--see "Canning Fruit in a Water Bath".
Cover boiler or kettle closely and sterilize or boil for the length of

the generated steam and it will burst the jars.
Asparagus, Beets, Carrots, Parsnips, Peas, Sweet Potatoes, and Turnips
require six minutes blanching, ninety minutes sterilizing. Asparagus
requires one hundred and twenty minutes.
Corn requires five minutes blanching on the cob; three minutes
sterilizing after being cut from the cob, or on the cob.
Lima or String Beans or Peas require five minutes blanching; two hours
Pumpkin and Squash require five minutes blanching; one and one-half
hours sterilizing.
Tomatoes require two minutes blanching; twenty-two minutes sterilizing.

ninety minutes sterilizing together. The acid of the tomatoes aids in
preserving the corn.
