How to can safely

Asked August 17, 2016, 12:21 PM EDT

I am a first time canner & scared to death to try now that I bought equipment. Interested in salsa, peppers, tomatoes, pickles, & jam. Do you have instructions, and/or recipe books? Specifically I want to use fresh lime juice vs vinegar or lemon in salsa, I only want to make 4-8, 1/2 pints

Hi, we have classes through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach called Preserve the Taste of Summer. You can find information here at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/humansciences/preserve-taste-summer

Additionally, the University of Georgia has information on line at www.uga.edu/nchfp They have an online tutorial and FAQ section as well as many recipes.
