Home Canning

Canning can be performed on a glass smooth top cooking
surface or traditional coil element cooktop. When canning
for long periods, alternate the use of surface cooking areas
or elements between batches. This allows time for the most
recently used areas to cool.
Center the canner on the largest surface cooking area or
element. On electric cooktops, canners should not extend
more than
/

element.
Do not place canner on 2 surface cooking areas or elements
at the same time.
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners to
avoid damage to the cooktop and elements.
For more information, contact your local agricultural
extension office or refer to published home canning guides.
Companies that manufacture home canning products can
also offer assistance.
