Description & Instructions:

The boiling water bath method (also known as ‘water bathing’ or ‘hot water bathing’) is where you fill clean jars with high acid contents (such as tomato relish, pickled zucchini, strawberry jam), seal with a preserving lid, and submerge under hot water, then bring to temperature. The Simple Natural Preserver takes only 60 minutes to preserve natural fruits.

The ‘high acid’ contents means an environment in which many microorganisms which spoil food or make it unsafe, are unable to survive. Heat destroys any food spoiling/ foodborne illness microbes which may be present. The processing also forces oxygen from the jars, creating a vacuum (anaerobic) environment, which inhibits survival or growth. Then as the jars cool after being removed from the water, a vacuum seal is created, which prevents recontamination and air entry.

High acid produce that can be boiling water bathed includes:
  • many fruits (to use in desserts, sauces and baking)
  • jams, conserves and fruit preserves
  • relish, chutneys, salsas
  • passata, pasta sauce or whole tomatoes
  • other sauces (to use as condiments, or as meal-bases or flavour enhancers in casseroles, stews, risotto, pizza sauce etc)
  • pickled vegetables (bread and butter pickles, dill cucumber pickles, pickled jalapenos etc)
