Is it alright to can nutmeats using the recipe in the Ball Blue Book?


Yes, but a better way to preserve nuts is to roast them in an oven for one to two hours at 200 degrees F. Then fill them hot into hot jars that have been sterilized in the oven while roasting the nuts. Seal with properly prepared two-piece lids and cool.
