If you can pick up a Ball Blue Book of preserving this will be a great help. I got mine at Wal-mart years ago and its a book that's worth it if you do canning or freezing of vegetables. Blanching is very important and must be done properly to destroy microorganisms that could destroy your food. But its a fairly easy process using boiling water don't over blanch this will cause a loss of flavor. Cool your vegetables by using ice water. Hope this helps.

You have to blanche them for a certain amount of time and this varies according to the vegetable. Google the topic, or else look in the stores where they sell canning supplies and see if you can find a book with this information in it. I really think you should be able to find the information you need by looking on google. It has been so many years since I have done this, that I can't remember all the details.
