How Canning Preserves Foods

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Canning

 Ingredients List

  • The high percentage of water in most fresh foods makes them very
  • perishable. They spoil or lose their quality for several reasons:
  • * growth of undesirable microorganisms- bacteria, molds, and yeasts, *
  • activity of food enzymes, * reactions with oxygen, * moisture loss.
  • Microorganisms live and multiply quickly on the surfaces of fresh food and
  • on the inside of bruised, insect-damaged, and diseased food. Oxygen and
  • enzymes are present throughout fresh food tissues. Proper canning practices
  • include:
  • * carefully selecting and washing fresh food, * peeling some fresh foods, *
  • hot packing many foods, * adding acids (lemon juice or vinegar) to some
  • foods, * using acceptable jars and self-sealing lids, * processing jars in
  • a boiling-water or pressure canner for the correct period of time.
  • Collectively, these practices remove oxygen; destroy enzymes; prevent the
  • growth of undesirable bacteria, yeasts, and molds; and help form a high
  • vacuum in jars. Good vacuums form tight seals which keep liquid in and air
  • and microorganisms out.
