once the solution inside the jars is boiling, it only takes like 3 minutes. i put mine in the microwave for about 5 minutes. never had a problem.

very serious...PC is the way or as the angry one on top of me said...microwave
*edit- altitude plays a factor...I wont do the math cuz I suck at it...

AJS- getting the liquid to boil in the jars is the difficult part...seal them and you stand a chance but run rhe risk of breakage..

A PC isnt necessary for sterilizing liquid solutions. If you boil too much and it caramelizes (assuming you are using clear karo), it will get a slightly yellow tint.

If you're using some golden karo, i guess it will also get a little darker.

then how is it possible for me to use that method for years without a contam in my LC jars? I steam the jars for 10 min in a few inches of slowly boiling water, same every time no carmelization AND no contams. But maybe I'm just very very very improbably lucky. :smirk:
