  3. Acid Foods - Fruits, tomatoes and pickled vegetables may be processed in a boiling-water-bath-canner. For tomatoes, use the hot pack method, process pints 35 minutes, quarts 45 minutes. To ensure consumer safety and remove doubt about acidity levels in tomatoes, add 1/4 teaspoon citric acid per pint or 1/2 teaspoon per quart; or add 1 tablespoon reconstituted lemon juice per pint or 2 tablespoons per quart. (Fresh lemon juice should not be used because the acidity varies.)

  5. Jellies, Jams, Preserves and Marmalades - use canning jars and process in boiling water-bath-canner. Paraffin tends to loosen and break on those products.
  6. Jars with broken seals will be disqualified.
  7. Awards will be 1st - 6th in each class. Only those will be awarded premium money.
    Some of the criteria the judges will be considering are:
    1. Condition of the Product

    3. Packing, Size, clarity of liquid
    4. Overall Appearance - Jars and lids must be clean
