Where Do You Find Safe, Reliable Canning Recipes?

Recipes in the following sources have been carefully tested in university laboratories. Recipes prepared as described and processed as recommended produce food that is safe and of highest possible quality. Recipes and recommendations for making high quality soft spreads (jams, jellies) and for pickling, freezing and drying are included as well.

We strongly recommend that folks not use untested canning methods from relatives, friends, neighbors, or from the internet. Spores of Clostridium botulinum, the organism that causes botulism, are present in most foods. Reliable food preservation methods from the sources above are designed to kill or control the growth of C. botulinum and other disease-causing organisms. Use reliable, tested, science-based methods to keep your family safe.
