When its canning season ~ test your gauge!
Testing only takes about 5 minutes per gauge. Pressure canners with a dial gauge need to be tested every year before you use them for accuracy. Canning with a gauge that is off can result in under-processing of home canned foods, which is unsafe. Contact your local Extension office or see events near you during the summer time.
Also, note that pressure canners are recommended for food preservation but pressure cookers and electric pressure cookers are not. Learn the difference.
Recipes and directions for storing and preserving mangoes. Green mangoes can be canned and made into sauce, chutney and salsa. Ripe mangoes can be frozen or dried. As mangoes ripen, they become less acidic. We do not have safe guidelines for canning ripe mangoes or mango sauce.
Tomatoes may be canned by themselves or in combination with other vegetables or meat (such as salsa, sauces and catsup or spaghetti sauce). It’s important to use safe procedures when canning tomatoes and tomato products. Laboratory-tested methods must be used to destroy microorganisms that cause spoilage.
