Microwaving to steralize before innoculation
    #1822739 - 08/17/03 03:00 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Does microwaving the 1/2 pint jars work as well to steralize them as putting them in a pot of water? I don't have a pressure cooker.

NO  :thumbdown: It would be better for you to put a towel in a large pot (with a lid) and boil 'em for an hour and some change.

the towel/washcloth keeps the jars from touching the bottom of the pot. which in turn helps to keep the jars from going crack and even worse boom!

Put the towel on the bottom of the pot, so the glass isn't resting directly on the bottom. Or you can use one of those steamer baskets in the bottom of the pot.

Well im using plastic jars so im not worried about them cracking. They probably would melt if they touched the bottom of the pot though. Should I fill it up with water as well?
