How To Can Homemade Preserves
Sanitize empty canning jars right-side up submerged in boiling water for at least 10 mins.
1
Simmer lids (not rings) to sanitize until ready to use. DO NOT BOIL! This will damage the rubber.
2
Transfer jam into jar leaving about 1/4-1/2” room at the top.
3
Run a knife around the edges and through the middle to remove air bubbles. ⚠️ Caution: Jar is hot!
4
Wipe rim clean with a damp paper towel to remove any debris.
5
Screw lid on but don’t fasten tightly. You should be able to unscrew it easily with your fingertips.
6
Submerge the jars completely in pot of boiling water for 10 mins. Cover with a properly fitting lid.
7
Remove from pot. Lids should be flat in the center, or “pop” flat as they cool. Once they flatten, screw lids tight.
8
If lids don’t pop flat after a few mins, repeat canning process, or try cooling the jar upside down.
