Heat, More Heat Gives
More Safety to Canning
Happy is the home canner whose
canned products always keep. The
four essentials in the keeping qual
ity of canned goods are adequate
hfat in processing to kill the bac
teria, yeasts and molds; second, an
airtight seal that remains airtight;
third, fresh sound products to start
with, and lastly, cleanliness, says
Lucy A. Case, extension specialist
in foods and nutrition at Oregon
Eeans are more likely to keep if
they are boiled five minutes before
being placed, still h0t, in the Jars.
All of these hot methods of handl
ing help to satisfy the first rule of
successful canning, adequate heat,
says Miss Case. She gives further
directions as follows:
Pour the boiling hot water in
which the beans were precooked
over the hot beans to one-half inch
from top of the jar, add one-half
teaspoon salt to each pint and par
tially seal. Keep the jars standing
in hot water until all are ready to
process. Then place them in the
hot cooker, preferably a pressure
cooker, and process at 10 pounds
pressure, 35 minutes for pint jars
and 40 minutes for quart jars.
The hot water bath is not recom
mended, but if it must be used,
lower the hot jars into boiling hot
water which comes one inch over
the tops of the jars. Bring the wa
ter to a boil again as soon as pos
sible and keep it at a rolling boil
for three hours. It may be neces
sary to add more boiling water to
take the place of what bolls away.
Letting the fire die down will lower
the temperature in the Jars. At the
end of the processing period, re
move jars, seal immediately and in
vert to test for leakage, except with
The cause of the spoilage of homo
canned beets, that resulted in three
deaths at Dayton, Wash., recently
was inadequate heat, as the beets
had been boiled only one hour in
the jars, reports to Miss Case indi
cate. These botulinus infected
beets were also eaten without boil
ing after taking them from the
can. A safe rule is to boil all home
canned meats, fish and non-acid
vegetables 15 minutes before tast
ing after opening the jars.
