There are two kinds of tins which can be used for canning, and are procurable at any of the Tin Factories in Johannesburg or Durban, namely, (1) tin with opening on top, which has a tin disc to be soldered on after being filled with fruit, and (2) tin with lever lid, which corresponds to the golden syrup tin. Both of these tins are excellent, although if fruit is to be canned on a big scale for commercial purposes, the former is the more suitable, whereas for household purposes the latter answers very well, it being possible to use it a second time if properly lacquered inside.
