Open Kettle Canning - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
A method of canning where the food is heat processed directly in a covered kettle and then, while hot, poured into sterile jars and sealed. Using this method may result in a loss of food quality because of low vacuum or too much air entering the jars when sealed. Also, foods have more of a chance of spoiling because the jars may become recontaminated when being filled.
