1.2 – The concepts of food preservation

There are three main objectives that should guide all home canning activities:
- The safety;
- The flavor;
- And appearance of food.

A successful canning will produce food that is safe, with a flavor as close as possible to the fresh taste and pleasing to the eye.

Home canning is not complicated: It is a simple process by which food is heat treated in a sealed jar of glass to prevent the deterioration that would otherwise occur.
