Fruits Loosing Liquid During Canning Process

(Provident Living Today)

Why do fruits loose liquid during the canning process?

  1. Filling jars too full

    • Raw pack - syrup and fruit to within half-inch of top

    • Hot pack - syrup and fruit to within half-inch of top

  2. Water in water-bath cooker doesn't cover tops of jars

  3. Boiling the water too hard during processing

  4. Not getting air bubbles out of jars
