Quick Canning Equipment List:

If you plan to can, you’ll need an assortment of jars (half pint, pint, quart, half gallon). Smaller jars are great for jams and sauces; larger jars are better suited for whole fruits and vegetables.

Tattler makes reusable canning lids (Amazon) for less than $1/each.

Old canning rings or a silicone trivet (Amazon) in the bottom of the pot work great as a rack. If you are just getting started, doing this method with jam would be a great way to ease into simple water bath canning.

A water-bath canner (Amazon) typically holds 8-9 pints or 7 quarts at a time and can be purchased new for less than $20.

Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving – Everyone interested or involved in preserving food should own this book

Jar Lifter – As the name implies, this helps lift hot jars in and out of the hot canner.

Magnetic Lid Wand – This tool helps get lids out of hot water (used to sterilize and soften the seals) and onto your jars. After burning my fingers far too many times, I finally broke down and bought one. For about $2.

Wide Mouth Funnel – Placed on a jar, this helps pour hot jams, sauces, or produce into hot jars without making a huge mess.

Bubble Remover – You can purchase an actual tool to slide into your filled jars to remove bubbles.

Pomona’s Universal Pectin (Amazon), which is 100% citrus pectin with no preservatives, is more expensive but has the benefit of making jam or jelly with low amounts of any sweetener.
