Canning Basics – Hot Water Bath - Continued
Grandma’s, a 1960’s Betty Crocker Cookbook and an old 1957 Ball Book of Canning said to do things andthen what is currently being said.I must add here that
none of us ever got sick
from our home preserved food stocks. Oh we had somethings that just didn’t look right so we tossed them, but we never got sick.
Remember that home preserved foods can look, taste and smell fine even though they have lost theirnutritional value.
With that in mind consider this:
Commercially and home canned goods can last decades, yet have no nutritional value
This is why most home canners plan their canning so it is usedup in under two years and commercially canned goods don’t fair much better.
