Canning with my GSO

Honey Apple Sauce in their canning jars

Who says that you can't can goods with a solar oven? I was a but skeptical too, so I figured I would give it a go and see what is going on. I made some yummy honey apple sauce, let it cook in the oven, then pulled it out, grabbed some canning jars, scooped my apple sauce in, and threw it back in. After about 5 minutes the tops popped in and they were canned for good. Think I may try leaving it out all day pretty soon to see what else I can make!!


Wow, that great, being able to can with your solar oven!

I am glad you were able to get good results.

It sounds though like you know a bit about canning and the basic rules of what can and cannot be preserved properly using the standard canning guidelines. (not everyone is knowledgeable in this area)

I assume, maybe, that you saw our page on solar canning and the precautions indicated and decided to take the challenge, or rather, to test your method?
