Quick Answers



Can I safely can fruits without sugar?

Yes. For the best quality, select fully ripe but firm fruit. Prepare the same as fruits with syrup but use water or unsweetened fruit juice instead of syrup. Juice made from the fruit being canned makes the best product. Blends of unsweetened apple, pineapple and white grape juice are also good. Use the same processing directions for fruit in syrup.
