() 'Three Outbreaks of Foodborne Botulism Caused by Unsafe Home Canning of Vegetables--Ohio and Washington, and ,' Journal of Food Protection, 74(12). Food preservation - Food preservation - Pickled fruits and vegetables: Fresh fruits and vegetables soften after 24 hours in a watery solution and begin a slow, mixed fermentation-putrefaction. The addition of salt suppresses undesirable microbial activity, creating a favourable environment for the desired fermentation. Most green vegetables and fruit may be preserved by pickling.

The acidity, or pH, of foods determines how they must be processed for canning. Acid foods such as fruits and pickles with a pH of or lower may be canned in a water bath canner. Low-acid foods such as vegetables and meats with a pH above must be processed in a pressure canner.

    For canning, foods are classified into two groups – acid and low-acid. Acid foodslike fruit, tomatoes, sauerkraut and pickled vegetables can be safely processed at the boiling point. The types of organisms that cause spoilage in these foods are usually killed at boiling temperatures. Formore infor-mation on water bath canning, see.

Anything above to needs to be per batch tested with a ph meter. heads are picked while young and tender and are rushed to the factory before toughening can take place.

Heads vary from 5 to 10 cm in diameter; the outer or coarser rows of the flowering parts and the stem are removed, and in order to conserve space, the outer third or even half of the parts remaining may be cut away as only the fleshy base is eaten. Canning High Acid Foods.

Ball’s Blue Book says, “The amount of salt called for in canning meats and vegetables is too small to help prevent spoilage; the salt is there only for seasoning. Follow recipes for canning low-acid vegetables, meats and poultry, but omit salt.

Boiling water reaches a temperature of °F (°C) but water and food in a pressure canner or retort achieve higher temperatures (–°F). For canning in particular, the pH of the food plays a key role in determining the extent of heat processing needed to insure a safe final product.

Canning low-acid foods As seen in Figure 1, a low-acid food is defined as a food having a pH of more than while a high-acid food is defined as a food with a pH value of or lower. There are litmus papers with narrow ranges.
