Hot Pack or Raw Pack (cold pack)? - The term "hot pack" means the food is first cooked in a syrup or other liquid. Foods that have been pre-cooked are already hot when they go into the canner, "Raw packed" means the food is raw when it's packed in the jars. Pickles and other foods that easily become soft or soggy go into the canner uncooked.

See Successful Home Canning - for the basics you need to know for successful home canning.
