If you have nostalgic memories of homemade blackberry jam, or if you have ever decided that yes – the chutney you just tried at the farmer’s market is definitely worth $10 per jar, then prepare to be amazed at what you can do in your own kitchen. These home canned fruit preserves will be a far cry from the thin, see-through grape jelly you get at the local diner.

When you are lacking in one, the other two can be stepped up to take over. After that, it’s just a matter of letting nature (and chemistry) take its course. Typically with relatively little effort, your boiling fruit gets itself into a preserved state for you. You can rely on your fruit preserves being safe thanks to their natural acid levels, and any pesky microbes that might have slipped in there, can easily be boiled out of existence. Heat wins again!

Chapter 5 – Frugality Tips and Tricks : How to Can on the Cheap.
