Preserving Food Safely - 01600530


NOTE: Sulfuring does NOT prevent insect infestations,
pack dried sulfur treated product immediately just as you
would unsulfured fruit.

Do not store sulfur treated fruit in containers with metal
lids unless a cellophane or polyethylene sheet is placed
under the lid. Sulfur fumes from the fruit will react with
unprotected metal.

Store fruit in dry, insect-proof containers such as home
canning jars with well-fitting lids. Coffee cans may be
used if the dried fruits are first placed in a plastic
bag. Fruits should be packed into the container as
tightly as possible without crushing. Storing fruits in
tightly sealed, plastic bags will help keep the original
fruit color.
