Confused about nuts & chocolate when canning
When I first started canning, I saw recipes for Chocolate Raspberry sauce and various conserves. I was told at the time that they were safe to can, but that they needed to be eaten within 6 months of canning because the oils in the chocolate and the oils in the nuts can go rancid. However, When looking at Ball's Complete Book of Home Preserving, 2006, I don't see any warnings like that for their "Chocolate Raspberry Sundae Topper" or any conserves (like "Pear Almond Conserve.") Can someone please clarify this for me?
