Canning Necessities:

Canning Necessities:

  • Water or Steam Bath Canner - If you plan to can fruits, tomatoes and other high acid foods such a canner is a must. For low acid foods (most vegetables, meat, seafood) a pressure canner is appropriate. Water and jars will go inside. A lid is required.
  • Canning Rack - A canning rack is also placed inside the canner. It is used to hold the jars while heating, and to lift them up and out of the water when ready.
  • Jars - They're not included with a start-up kit, but glass jars with lids and rings are required for foods that will be stored at room temperature. They come in varying sizes, with pint and quart sizes being the most common.
  • Canning Reference Book -The novice canner will find this especially useful. A good reference book will provide you with step by step instructions on how to start cannimg, and will often be filled with useful recipes.
  • Kitchen Tongs - When it comes to canning, an ordinary set of kitchen tongs can prove most userul. Use them to safely grasp and move food items from boiling water and to insert chunks of meat, and large pieces of vegetables and fruits into your canning jars.
  • Magnetic Lid Lifter -  Lids need to be sterilized prior to use. The magnetic lid lifter provides an easy and safe means of lifting those lids out of the boiling water used to sterilize them.
  • Jar Wrench - Magnify wrist strength and keep your hands away from truly hot objects. Use the jar wrench when tightening canning jar lids. They are also useful in loosening lids on practially any jar.
  • Jar Brush - The caning jar brush is the perfect tool to use when cleaning mason jars. The handle allows to the brush to reach those areas in which hands and fingers alone do not or cannot properly reach.
  • Wide-Neck Canning Funnel - The canning funnel allows the home canner to more easily fill canning jars, and to do so more safely and with much less mess.
  • Jar Lifter - As the name implies, jar lifters are used to lift hot jars out of the canner. Protect you hands from burns and scalds.
  • Canning Scoop - The canning scoop works well with the canning funnel. Spooning hot foods into those canning jars can be done much more quickly and cleanly by scooping it insstead.
