LOOKING for: sodium in canned foods

11 years ago

My DH has recently been diagnosed a diabetic and he also has high blood pressure. I was thinking of canning our vegies. I have read on different sites you do not need to add salt when canning them. Salt is only added for flavor. I would also like to do some pickling but was concerned about the amount of sodium in the pickling salt. Most recipes call for 1/4-1/2 c. of salt. Do you think that would add a lot of sodium to the pickled foods? Marg
