Pack your fruit in jars. Add the Fruit Fresh then make your syrup. Combine sugar and water; boil to dissolve sugar. Cover your fruit with syrup.
Seal your lids tight; put on a baking sheet in a cold oven. You can do as many as you sheet will hold. If you have two baking sheets that will fit at the same time that's okay too.Turn the oven on and bake 1 hour at 250 degrees F. Let the fruit cool completely before opening the door.
I like to do mine in the afternoon then leave them until the next morning.

When canning my fruits, I use white grape juice instead of water and sugar. If you use frozen, mix according to recipe. You can use the juice to drink in a glass, thicken it up with a little pearled tapioca and make your bars/pies with it. Best of all, the sugar is nil. I use the Juicy Juice brand.
Using the juice makes it taste just like fresh fruits.
I want to can peaches. I do not have a canning rack, but do a have large pot that holds seven 1 qt. jars perfectly and is deep enough to cover the jars more than 1 inch over the tops. I'm afraid the jars will crack over my gas burner. How can I improvise a canner so that I can can some peaches?

I do not have a canning rack either. I use a washcloth and place it at the bottom of my canner and fill with water. This keeps the jars from coming in contact with the canning pot.
