Using food processor to prep for canning?
Sorry if this questioned has been asked and answered. I did a search and did not find it. I am new to canning and wondered if it was possible to shorten my prep time by using a food processor to chop some veggies. Specifically, I was wondering if it is alright to use for Annie's salsa, Ellie Topps chunky basil sauce, Ball's sweet pickle relish, and Sure Gel's pepper jelly? I would not use for tomatoes for the salsa or pasta sauce since it seems it would liquefy them. I know this might seem like a silly question but I was wondering if the food processor might release too much liquid, especially with the peppers and cukes. Also, not sure if the fact that some pieces are different sizes would be a problem.
Thanks in advance. I have been a long time lurker and have learned a lot from the experienced canners who take the time to answer basic questions like this!
