Everything for Canning

Canning, preserving, pickling - maybe you never heard these words before? They are ways of keeping your food fresh for longer. Canning is actually an age-old preservation technique, and it is becoming quite popular again! Besides being cheap, easy, and accessible, glass jars are a beautiful accessory for your kitchen! 

What is canning?

Canning is the preservation of food. You can preserve vegetables, fruits, and even meat products. Normally, fresh ingredients spoil due to mould and bacteria, but storing food in a canning jar ensures these microorganisms are killed. By boiling a jar in water, all the air escapes and creates a vacuum. From then on, there is no more contact with the air and therefore the food can be kept longer. 

What can you do with it?

If you properly preserve food, otherwise known as picking or canning, you can keep it for years. You can preserve nearly every fruit or vegetable. For example, apples, pears, strawberries, blackberries - you name it. Veggies can also be preserved, but it is important you do it properly! It is also very easy to put seasonal fruits and veggies in a jar. Ever thought of making your own jam? You can do that easily with a canning jar. Are you curious to know more? Then read on!

How to make jam

Ingredients:

  • 2 clean glass canning jars
  • 500 grams of fruit, e.g. strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries
  • 500 grams of jelly sugar
  • A few drops of lemon juice

Jam can be made with all different kinds of fruit. When making your own jam, it's smart to use a large, high pot with a thick base. This is due to the jam sometimes splattering during preparation; so be careful! It's a good idea to use a high pot to avoid having your entire kitchen covered in sticky jam. To make sure your jam doesn't get too watery, it's better to clean the fresh fruit with a wet tea towel instead of under the tap. It is important that the jars are made of glass and can be sealed airtight. 

Cut the cleaned fruit into small pieces and purée in a food processor. Then put all the fruit in the pan together with the lemon juice and jelly sugar, then bring to a boil over medium heat while continuously stirring. Keep stirring until the jam starts boiling. Keep stirring for about 4 minutes and then turn off the heat. If there is foam on the jam, scoop it off. Then fill the preserve jars with the jam and close them well.
