Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I have never canned carrots before so I started by checking on line to see if I could find some pointers. After looking at several convoluted armature videos and what seemed like overly complicated recipes I found this web site. The process is explained simply and is very straight forward. Exactly what I was looking for. In my first batch I processed 26 half pint jars with no problems.
