Because most fruits are naturally high in acid, they are safe to can in a boiling water or steam canner. Acidic foods have a pH of 4.6 or lower and include most fruits except:
- Asian pears
- Ripe pineapple
Look for research-based recipes for fruits in the list above. They contain added acid to make them safe.
