Canning Raspberries

Often when you grow your own fresh produce or fruits your run into problems when it comes to storage. We have done well with our raspberries, with many preservation options available including freezing raspberries, dehydrating raspberries and even fermented fresh berries. Now let us add one more way, by taking a look at how to can fresh whole raspberries.

What I love about this whole process is unlike making raspberry jam, you are actually able to can the raspberries whole without crushing them. This allows you to use them at a later date just as if they were fresh in your smoothies, salads, cobblers and more. Are you ready to learn this easy process?

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Give your berries a good rinse, and remove any worms if necessary. Also disinfect your jars and keep them warm until you need them. Put your stainless steel pot on the stove and add your sugar as well as water, to make your light syrup that you will use when canning your berries.

In each jar, add about half a cup of syrup then fill with berries and add more syrup to about half an inch below the rim. Wipe your rims with a dry kitchen rag and then lift your warm lids and rings onto the jar. Screw on the lid and use the jar lifter to carefully load the jars into the canner.

Once you have filled all your jars, you can then process them at a rolling boil for about 15 minutes in your water bath canner. When processed lift from the canner, and place on your kitchen towel on the counter or table. I let mine cool and seal for at least 12 to 24 hours. Store in a cool, dry place.
