Preserve Jar Vs. Keg

The Preserves Jar increases the profit of a crop using the following equation: 50g + (2 * base value of crop), while the Keg multiplies the base value of fruits by 3, and vegetables by 2.25. Because of this, low-value high-yield crops like corn or tomatoes are more valuable in the preserves jar. The keg, on the other hand, favors crops with a much higher base value, such as Ancient Fruit or Melons. Below is a list of crops that are more beneficial to be put in the keg. (raw base price, bold above 200g)

It should be noted that these calculations only involve the value gained in terms of max profit; if looking at profit per day based on the time required, it is always more beneficial to use a preserves jar, on the highest value item possible (2 days to multiply value by 2x).
