Home Canned Ginger Carrots

10 pounds of uncut/unprepared carrots will make 6 quart jars…

Wash, peel, wash again then cut the carrots. We like round, inch thick pieces. Cut according to your preference.  Have a stock pot of boiling water ready on the stove while chopping.

Add 1 teaspoon of minced ginger to each hot jar.  Pack carrots tightly into jars leaving 1 inch head space.  Ladle boiling water over top of carrots, removing air bubbles being sure to adjust water level as needed to keep the 1 inch head space.

Tip:  Use the handle of a wooden spoon to gently press down on the carrots to remove excess air.

Wipe rim with a warm wash cloth, apply lid and ring.  Hand tighten.  Process quart jars in a pressure canner for 30 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure.

These delicious carrots make a wonderful side dish to compliment any dinner!
