Quick Answers



Is it possible to safely can baby food at home?

You may prepare pureed fruit, with or without sugar, using the directions in the "Complete Guide to Home Canning," Ag Information Bulletin No. 539, which can be found on the National Center for Home Food Preservation website.


CAUTION: don't can pureed vegetables, meat, poultry or fish because safe times have not been developed.
