You will need 6 wide-mouth pint-size canning jars,

jars. Sterilize jars, lids and rings according
to manufacturer's directions. Grease inside, but
not the rim of jars.

Cream sugar and shortening, beat in eggs and
water, add carrots. Sift together flour, cloves,
cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt;
add to batter. Add raisins and mix. Pour one cup
of batter into prepared jars. Do not use more than
one cup or batter will overflow and jar will not seal
Place jars evenly spaced on a cookie sheet. Bake for
45 minutes. While cakes are baking, bring a saucepan
of water to a boil and carefully add jar lids
Remove pan from heat and keep hot until ready to use
Remove jars from oven one at a time keeping remaining
jars in oven. Make sure jar rims are clean. Place
lids on jars and screw rings on tightly. Jars will
seal as they cool. Cakes will slide right out when
ready to serve
