How do I can my family recipe?

Unfortunately homemade recipes should not be canned unless the recipe and procedure have been scientifically tested because a safe product cannot be guaranteed.

In fact, only recipes that have been scientifically tested should be used when canning. By selecting a recipe that has been proven to result in a safe, bacteria-free food, you know the finished product is safe to eat and free from any bacteria.
