Ascorbic Acid Vit C- fruits from turning brown
**keeps fruit from browning through oxidation - my apples in my apple-cran pie filling recipe stayed so white...I was so pleased!
I only have done Water Bath Canning and this totally works. I am sure a lot of you already use this process.
I then soak the fruit in the water for about 10 minutes or more. This works wonders in preserving the natural colors and preventing oxidation -- and it's HEALTHY to use!!
