235 Canning Recipes For You To Try This Harvest Season

Friends, canning season is officially among us!

To date, I have canned the following items:

  • Green beans
  • Dill pickles
  • Salsa
  • Pickled jalapenos
  • Tomato sauce 

I’m not even going to tell you the quantities because…I don’t remember! But to say the least, it has been a bountiful harvest so far. 

Each year, I make it a goal to try out at least one new canning recipe, so I’ve amassed quite a few tasty ideas. But when you’re just getting started, it can be tough to figure out which ones are good – and which ones are gross. Even worse, canning can be challenging and downright unsafe if you don’t have a safe recipe to fall back on.

Don’t make any of the most common canning mistakes – instead, consider giving these recipes a try. And be sure to check out the ultimate list of what you can – and cannot – process in a canner.

Quick Tips for Canning

Here are some tips to help you get started. While these recipes do a good job of breaking down all the steps involved in canning for you, there are some precautiosn you must take to ensure safe and successful canning. 

All vegetables that are low-acid (all of those except tomatoes, which are technically a fruit anyway) must be processed in a pressure canner. Low-acidity foods cannot safely be preserved in a water bath canner.

Jams, jellies, and tomato products can safely be processed in a water bath canner like this one

When processing in any kind of canner, make sure you only select the highest-quality foods. 

If you are making a recipe that calls for any of these ingredients, best safety practices recommend adding them after you have opened the can later, right before serving. Do not add these ingredients prior to canning, as it can cause a decline in safety:

  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Cream or milk
  • Cheese and yogurt
  • Butter
  • Thickeners
  • Nuts
  • Grains
  • Refried Beans
  • Purees
  • Squash 
  • Brussels sprouts and cabbage
  • Lettuce 
  • Artichokes
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Olives

Invest in a good pressure canner like this one.It will be well-worth the investment. Never leave your pressure canner unattended, either.

Consider using a jar lifter to extract hot jars from your canner. Here’s a great one to consider. 

You can reuse mason jars between canning cycles, but you should never reuse bands or lids. They may fail to seal and can cause food spoilage. 

Always follow a tried and tested recipe! Now is not the time to experiment with your cooking. Don’t jeopardize your health.

Now, on to the recipes…
