“From Ball Blue Book of preserving. I hate to admit this but I had a case of 'canning fever', my boys ate our carrots from the garden when they were only an inch long and I just felt I 'had' to can something, So bought the carrots from the supermarket...whew it felt good to get that out of my system! Yield varies- 6 pints or 3 quarts”
