Q.About Small Carrots

Zone 3-4 | Anonymous added on August 1, 2013 | Answered

I have to thin my carrots. Will fairly small ones mush up if I can them in pint jars? I was thinking I could cut down the time in the pressure cooker. It would seem to me that small ones cook easier, and hopefully would still seal and be cooked.

Thanks for any help I receive!

For canning information, one should consult a publication like "The Ball Blue Book", or contact their local agricultural extension office. As a non-acidic food, carrots should be canned to 'standard' guidelines, no matter their age.
