Canning: Altitude adjustment

(Photo courtesy of

One thing that we have yet to discuss, that really impacts the processing of our food, are adjustments that need to be made for high altitudes when canning. If you live at sea-level, you most likely do not have to adjust the processing time or the pressure if you are using a Pressure Canning. However, the LRH essentially lives in a mountain range, and adjustments are necessary.

How do you know if you need to make adjustments or what adjustments to make? The good folks at Ball Canning have prepared 2 PDF documents to assist you in this area. Please see the links below for more information. Just one more thing to know as you are taking steps to help yourself and your family become better prepared.
