Tip of the Week

Raw Pack (Cold Pack)

Pack raw fruit into jars and cover with boiling hot sugar syrup, juice or water. It is necessary to leave a head space between the lid and the top of food or liquid. If the jars are filled too full the contents may overflow during processing. The amount of head space is usually between 1/8 and 1/2 inch.
