bottle, to

Definition

Food

  • To preserve food, usually fruit but sometimes vegetables, in sealed sterilized bottles. Prevention of bacterial spoilage is by heating to 130°C for 30 minutes, or by addition of acid, salt or sugar, all of which inhibit bacterial growth. Apart from fruit, most food is too difficult to bottle under domestic conditions.
