Tip of the Week

Jars processed in a boiling water bath less than 15 minutes need to be sterilized.
Here´s how:
fill boiling water bath canner about two-thirds full of hot water; set jars on rack and lower into water, letting water fill jars. Add wide-mouthed metal funnel and 1/2 cup (125 mL) metal measure for filling jars. Cover and bring to boil; boil for 15 minutes, timing so jars are ready at same time as pickles.
