How to Can Carrots
carrots per quart
Wash carrots really well. Peel if desired, we leave ours if the carrots are organic.
Slide, dice, or leave whole if no more than 1 1/2 inches thick.
Pack carrots into hot, clean jars. Leave 1 inch headspace.
Add 1 tsp salt to each quart jar. This is optional, but I recommend it. The carrots are very bland without and salting them after they have been canned does nothing.
Ladle boiling water over carrots, leaving 1 inch headspace.
Remove air bubbles with
. DO NOT use a metal utensil as it can cause the jar to break under pressure.
Add lids and rings.
Process pints for 25 minutes, quarts for 30 minutes at 10 pounds pressure in a pressure canner.
Pressure cookers and pressure canners are not the same thing. Read my
