  • Home canning tips

    Watch your headspace. In canning, this is the empty space between the top of the food and the top of the jar. This empty space allows the food in the jar to expand during processing. If too little headspace is left, the hot food may bubble over the top of the jar during processing, leaving a deposit on the rim and preventing the lid from sealing. If too much headspace is left, the processing time may not be long enough to drive all of the air out of the jar. This may cause the food in the jar to discolor and may prevent the formation of a strong vacuum seal on cooling.
