   Fruit Purees
   Of any fruit except figs and tomatoes.
   
   Procedure: Stem, wash, drain, peel, and remove pits if
   necessary. Measure fruit into large saucepan, crushing
   slightly if desired. Add 1 cup hot water for each
   quart of fruit. Cook slowly until fruit is soft,
   stirring frequently. Press through sieve or food mill.
   If desired for flavor, add sugar to taste. Reheat pulp
   to boil, or until sugar dissolves if added. Fill hot
   into clean jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Adjust
   lids and process.
   
   Processing directions for canning purees in a
   boiling-water, a dial, or a weighted-gauge canner are
   given in Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3.
