I have been using this process for about 20 years. The advantages are.....
1. A small amount of fruit can be processed at any time.
2. Fruit that is blemished or past its use by date , can be saved.
3. It is especially suited to families where there are 2/3 people.
4. It is inexpensive to do.
5. It doesn't take up valuable freezer space.
Following are 5 stages in pictures and comments. A little practice will result in fast preserving and a ready supply of bottled fruit.
I keep all jars that have the small white rubber ring inside the lid. Especially those that are 1 or 2 cup size. With practice you can do 3 or 4 jars at a time, providing they are all the same size. Just multiply the time by the number of jars.
