Canning Kiwifruit

Kiwifruit has a milder flavor when it is canned. It retains the shape well, the texture is softer, and the color becomes lighter than fresh kiwifruit.

Boiling water bath is recommended. Do not use open kettle or oven method. Use standard canning jars and lids, prepared and sealed according to the manufacturer's directions.

Select solid, firm-ripe fruit, free from spots. Discard damaged fruit. Wash and peel. Fruit may be canned whole, sliced or crushed. Sliced fruit, carefully arranged in the jar makes the most attractive pack.
