Canning Season is in Full Sway in 1920

Bakersfield Californian, Bakersfield, California July 05 1920, page 3

Mrs. M. A. Toland, who has had years of experience with fruits, tells of a delicious fig preserve which she is making. Her recipe calls:

  • 7 lbs figs
  • 5 lbs sugar
  • 1 pint vinegar

Cook slowly until juice is thick and syrupy. Whole cinnamon and cloves in a small bag boiled with the fruit lends a delicious spiciness.


Mrs. Dora Wilson has found that apricots and peaches may be successfully canned without sugar if the fruit is canned in small quantities, one quart t as time, using three cups of water to enough fruit to fill the jar. Using small quantities, the fruit can be canned at the boiling point, and is much more likely to keep well.
