Questions and Answers
Do I have to pressure cook the jars?
Do you use pressure cooker or just boil in regular pot. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Would like to try
You do not need a pressure cooker when canning. As long as you have a pot large enough to submerge the jars up to their lids, you are fine. Boil for 10 minutes or until the seals no longer pop if you push the center. You also should have a pair of tongs to remove the hot jars from the pot or turn off the pot and wait for the water to cool down along with the jars. Many people store their jars upside down for a few hours after they come out of the water.
