Canned Goods Quality & Safety
HomeMaking Queen ensures a significant amount of sterilization and quality control when making canned products, such as our Jams, Preserves, Pickles, or Salsas. All fruits and vegetables are given several cleanings and a vinegar bath to ensure no pesticides or residue remain on the produce. All glass jars are completely sterilized in a boiling vinegar bath. All products are then hand filled and sealed appropriately with pressure and heat for the utmost quality assurance and flavor preservation. All products are then lab tested, to ensure the correct ph balance to verify products are shelf stable prior to opening.
Creation / Expiration Dates: Many of our canned products are labeled with a creation date. Think of our canned goods like a fine wine or cheese, naturally many have flavors that develop and transform with age. Since we preserve naturally using citric acid, vinegar, or alcohol, these natural preserves can intensify fruit or spice elements in the flavor. For example, the Salsas tend to get spicier, the Booze-Infused become more bold, and the Naturally Sweet Fruit Jams, many like the Blackberry Pomegrante or WinterBerry, only get better with age.
Please note: When opening the jar, center of the lid should pop, or pressure should release from edges, indicating a good seal and the food is safe. If for any reason the seal is broken, has odd odor, or product is questionable, please discard. I always check under the lid, if it appears clean, and smells good, I consider it safe. DO NOT taste test any food you are not sure of. Please contact us immediately for a replacement product.
Booze-infused jams & Rum Cakes
HomeMaking Queen enjoys using alcohol not only as a preservative, but also as a malleable flavor, similar to a spice. As we make it our responsibility to provide you with quality alcohol infused products, we please ask that you also enjoy them responsibly.
