12 Benefits Of Canning Your Own Food
Further, additives such as citric acid and calcium chloride, though ruled safe, may be found in some products to preserve color and texture, say experts at Kansas State University's Department of Human Nutrition. When it comes to home canning, you are the can-do wizard of your kitchen and have full control over what goes inside each jar. The main thing to keep in mind is to use fruits and vegetables soon after harvest to preserve nutrients, according to Penn State Extension. For most vegetables, the ideal time is within six to 12 hours after picking (via the National Center for Home Food Preservation). Most fruit should be ripened one or more days between harvest and canning. If you can't get to it right away, store items in a cool, dark place until you're ready to tie on the apron and get cooking.
