Instructions

  1. This procedure works with any fruit except figs and tomatoes.

    Procedure: Stem, wash, drain, peel, and remove pits if necessary. Measure fruit into large saucepan, crushing slightly if desired. Add 1 cup hot water for each quart of fruit. Cook slowly until fruit is soft, stirring frequently. Press through sieve or food mill. If desired for flavor, add sugar to taste. Reheat pulp to boil, or until sugar dissolves if added. Fill hot into clean jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process.

    Processing directions for canning purees in a boiling-water, a dial, or a weighted-gauge canner are given in Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3.
