When sterilizing the jars by method of boiling.. What is the best way i was told to boil them for an hour while adding water as it evaporates using tin foil as a lid. My question is do i poke a holin in the tin foil to let the steam out?

You don't need to poke a hole in the foil if you are using metal lids with holes already in them.....what tek are you using?

If you fill the pots with water up to the halfway mark of the jars you dont need to add water while it is boiling.

I like the water level around half way up the jars to begin. That amount lasts the entire time I'm sterilizing the jars. Turn the heat on or flame and leave until boiling. Then turn it down so it is almost barely just boiling. Leave for an hour. The foil is to keep water from dripping down off the lid into the jars which should have loose lids.

I've never left the lids loose, Ive always covered the innoc sites with tape, and covered the lid with foil, and it works for me

We might get glimpse's of objectivity every now, and then, but we're so inherently locked in our temporal and corporeal selves that we're irrevocably locked into subjectivity :crazy:
