oven question.....
    #1135948 - 12/12/02 04:52 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

thanks for all the prompt feed back ,everyone. im a hardcore noob with a bunch of questions. :confused:  anyways, i have 2 1pint jars waiting to be sterilized. im contemplating between boiling them or sticking them in an oven. ive read most of the teks, and almost none of them say if you can or not. is it possible to just stick the jars in an oven on low heat? would that be bad for the cakes? also, would they get dehydrated? and finally, can you just add water to them if they get dehydrated whill in the oven? muchos gracias :grin:

Just the jars as they are? No.

> would that be bad for the cakes? also, would they get dehydrated?
Yes.

>and finally, can you just add water to them if they get dehydrated while in the oven?

How would you know how much water evaporated(except you were to weigh them before and after...) And how would you add the water uniformly? How would you assure sterility while adding the water?

My tip: stick to boiling(90 minutes), or even better, pressure cooking.

Anno is right :smile:

Ovens create a dry heat.  Dry heat will evaporate the moisture in your cakes.  And unless you had a really good setup with moisture sensors in your oven :smile:  you wouldn't know how much water evaporated.

Whats the problem with boiling them?

The oven would most likely cook the substrate. Bad idea. If you don't have a PC, use steam.
