Canning Strawberries

When canning anything you need to make sure to follow the directions to a tee! You cannot defer from the safe recipe that is provided to you. I do not want to name names, but I have seen some canning YouTubers who are NOT following the safe directions given to them and go off on their own doing whatever they wish. You cannot, by any means, do that unless you speak to the company first and get the approval from them. Click here to find the safe recipe that I am following below. If you have no experience with canning, then I recommend starting with this strawberry recipe as it is super easy and does not require much skill. Sanitize your jar according to the link here! The link provided is to ball's website for beginners. And remember, when canning do it safely, according to the safe websites above and follow directions to a tee. You can use either 7 quart jars or 9 pint jars according to the national center for home food preservation.

These canned strawberries are my favorite for smoothies, over angel food cake, plain with whipped cream on top, Kristopher and Kailee take these to school in their planetbox lunch boxes, and at home. I cannot tell you how much Kristopher and Kailee love these. The other night when I canned these, I had some left over so I place it in the fridge to cool, and served it in a ramekin for their "dessert" kind of like a TV dinner! It was amazing, they loved it!! =]] Okay, now that you get where I am coming from on safety, let's get to canning the strawberries.
