Pressure canning 6oz jars

Asked October 5, 2019, 10:53 AM EDT

How long would you pressure cook in a 6oz jar? All the recipes I have are for pints or larger. I make food for my disabled son and want to do serving size jars. Thank you

I understand you are trying to make serving sized portions for your son. The issue is we can only recommend that you use the jar size stated in a recipe. If you use a different size than the recipe calls for the processing time and temperature have not be tested for that level. We recommend to always use a tested recipe and to follow these tested recipes with no deviations for safe food preservation.
