Many people think that pressure canning does the same job as a pressure cooker, but that just isn’t the case. Pressure canning can only be done in a pressure canner, which subjects your food to high-pressure steam and high temperatures. This process can only be used low foods with low levels of acidity, such as sauces, beans, meats, and soups.
Steam canning is easily done at home and only requires a few different utensils. All you have to do is fill jars with your favorite foods, and then pop them in a pot on the stove. The heat of the steam will process your food and preserve them for months. You will be able to open up your jars again when you want to enjoy the food inside.
Water Bath Canning
If you have high acidity foods that you want to preserve, then water canning will do the trick. You can do this with the likes of tomatoes, pickles, and fruits, and it’s a fairly simple process. Simply stick your jars in a water bath, and then place the lid on the top. As the temperature rises, the food will become perfectly preserved.
