Thanks Christa! What a generous post!

Thank you Christa! I hopped over and discovered my problem...I always have raw packed my peaches (like my mom did) and poured boiling water into the jar...interesting! I'll have to give it a try. :)

Have a wonderful day!
With Love,

Very interesting...I never knew that before. I always get the extra space in my jars of fruit too! :)


Linda Stubbs said...

Thank you for the info here. I will go over and learn some things. I will be getting some peaches at the end of next week. I can't wait to get them up on the shelf. Been busy doing tomatoes.

Blessings sweet friend, Linda

There's just something so homey about canned foods. Brings to mind alot of memories.

Have a super week-end,

I wonder if there might be other factors to be considered as the cause of the space at the bottom other than cold packing; such as how small the peaches are cut (halves would move less), altitude, or peach type. We always cold pack our peaches and do not have over 1" of space at the bottom of the jars. We can mostly halves, sometimes quarters if the peaches are huge. Here is a link to a picture of our peach canning project. The second picture shows peaches waiting to be canned, and the third picture shows peaches that are canned and cooling off, showing very little space at the bottom.
