This process is accomplished in a boiling water bath can- ner or a steam pressure canner. The type of canner you use depends on the kind of food you are canning. For fruits, tomatoes and pickled vegetables, use a boiling water bath canner. These foods contain enough acid to be processed safely in boiling water. For common vegetables (except tomatoes), use a steam p:~ essure canner. Processing these low-acid foods safely in a reason- able length of time takes a temperature higher than a boiling water bath. Other equipment you will need include a can- ning thermometer, jars specifically made for can- ning, metal canning lids with a sealing compound, and metal screw bands to hold lids in place.
