Instructions

  1. Quantity: An average of 17-1/2 pounds is needed per canner load of 7 quarts; an average of 11 pounds is needed per canner load of 9 pints. A bushel weighs 48 pounds and yields 16 to 24 quarts--an average of 2-1/2 pounds per quart.

    Quality: Choose ripe, mature fruit of ideal quality for eating fresh or cooking.

    Procedure: Follow directions for peaches except do not dip in hot water or remove skins, wash, either hot or raw pack, and use the same process time.
