Flower Patch reader, Roberta, requested some tips on how the Amish do their canning. We have gathered a few tips for you, but do look out for more. Anyway, we are sure you will find these tips helpful.
1)When making jelly for canning, you do not always have to go through the challenge of extracting juice from fruits before reaching to the point of making your jelly. An easier way is to purchase the fruit juice and get straight into your jelly making.
2)For pickled dilly beans, make sure beans are standing upright when packing jars. You may need to trim beams or cut them in halves to have them fit properly.
