I want to sell canned little cakes and quick breads, is that allowed?
No, cakes and quick breads baked in a canning jar are not allowed, as they are not a safe product. Dry mixes that are labeled can be packed in a canning jar. The only canned products allowed under the Act are jams, jellies, and fruit butters (with the exception of jalapeno jelly and pumpkin butters which are not allowed).
