What is a boiling-water canner?


A boiling-water canner is a large kettle with lid and rack. It must be deep enough to allow jars to be covered with 1 to 2 inches of water and still have additional height for water to boil actively. It is suitable for processing foods such as fruits, pickles and sweet spreads.
